Connecting to website Database

I have abyss web server, preconfigured php and MySQLinstaller 1.4 running on my laptop.

I have a website that has MySQL databases on it.

My website says I should connect to MySQL by using localhost.

My MySQL username is sideshoe@localhost and I have the correct password to access the databases.

When I try to connect I cannot get a remote connection to my website databases using MySQL for Excel. I keep getting unable to connect errors.

Is there a way I can make a remote connection to my website MySQL by altering my "hostname" in MySQL for Excel?

Taking my first steps so apologies if this is a stupid request.
