For connecting labs refer below YouTube link.


Good day Annapurna,

I am not sure if the YouTube will help me in this case - I have taken a look. My error message is actually on server deny access. Is it explained on YouTube how I give myself the access?




Thank you for the response.

Kind Regards,

To access mysql in labs refer to the below link.

--connect jdbc:mysql:// \
--username retail_user \
--password itversity \
--table orders \
--target-dir /user/ndingibr/order
