Thanks for all the responses. phpMyAdmin is installed on the website but it's in a password protected folder to which we can't find the access details for. The only real info I have is the database connection string from the PHP scripts I downloaded off the FTP server. Using SQLyog is not a necessity, I just prefer it to phpMyAdmin. > If your account allows connection via a SSH shell >From what I could make out from 1&1 tech [dodgy line quality and very heavy overseas call centre accent] the account is likely to support an SSH connection... trouble is we don't have the access details and I know tech won't hand them out as we're not the account holder. Now waiting for the client to get back to us and fingers crossed they can find some further account details.

Best to restrict it as best you can. If your IP changes, try just a subnet or if you're unsure of that, you could leave it open. I can't remember now but I'm pretty sure when I was on 1&1 I was able to use SQLYog.
