I think you should try something like phpMyAdmin. It is easy to use and to configure access to users on certain data bases.

i suggest you read the mysql docs:

http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/index.html


also connecting from the internet to a database without ssl is insecure and also slow if the machines are not both on broadband connection. you should rather host the scripts, etc on the same machine or at lease a machine close to your machine.

tcp/ip connections are 10% slower btw!
