Due to security reasons, databases are configured to accept requests only from the same server as they are (localhost), and it blocks all requests from outside (another server).
So, if you have issues migrating WordPress blog to Magento 2, you have to move your WordPress database to the same server your Magento database is located. The other option is to edit the WordPress database settings to enable access from other servers and change the database user permissions.
