I using jdbc connecting my localhost db working well… is it the way / approach to do it for erpnext ?

I solve this issue myself, the problem is to allow remote access to db. Find the mysql folder, then my.conf , then edit the value 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0 which means allow remote access and follow the step from these link http://www.configserverfirewall.com/ubuntu-linux/enable-mysql-remote-access-ubuntu/
