connecting to SQL server

Hello, I created a simple test database in order to connect my PowerBI to it. However, i am having issues.

 

Database info:

Server: db4free.net  port is 3306

database name: woodinvillecrime

username: woodinvilleuser

pssword: crimesucks

 

1. I click on Get Data

2. on the server field I fill in db4free.net

3. on the next page I plug on the username and password. I then get the  "we could not authenticate with the credentials provided"  message. what am i doing wrong here ?

I am certain that user id and password are correct. I am able to log in to the db4free.net website and few MySQL data.

 

Can you please tell me what am I missing?

You should install the MySQl connector for Power BI before attempting to connect. You can find more information here.
