You can use SSH to connect to a database that was created in the Account Control Center (ACC). By doing this, you will be able to make changes from the terminal/command line.
Connecting to Your Database with SSH

- Once you have logged in to your account, type in the command:
mysql -h dbDomain.pair.com -u dbUser -p dbName
This is your database’s server.

This user is not the same as your account username. Each database has three different users, each one with different access levels. For more information about the users and their access levels, see our article, How to Find Your Database Username.
This is your database’s name.

You can find this information by going to the Manage Your Databases interface and clicking the name of your database.
