Connection with ip instead of Url

I need to set up a connection with my database on the ip address temporarily as the url cannot be moved yet to the new host, and I have to work on the database before I switch the dns. I've set it up with the credentials below, but I get "An unidentified error has occurred". I've done this before in the past. I just can't remember the settings that I used. And to connect to the temporary site the address works something like this: ~example

MySQL server: localhost
Username: example_cmsUser
Password: *****
Database: example_cms
