phpMyAdmin is an application to help manage a MySQL or MariaDB database;
it's not a database platform itself. So your VB program will need to
connect directly to the database, not phpMyAdmin.

I don't know much about using VB in this way; you should ask on a VB
programming forum or even a general interest forum such as

As long as your remote MySQL/MariaDB user has allowed connections from
your local machine, and as long as there isn't any firewall or other
network restriction blocking your connection, you can do so by defining
the appropriate 'host' in config.inc.php. You may find

This mailing list is for discussing development of phpMyAdmin; you're
much more likely to get good help for general programming inquiries from
a site such as StackOverflow.

Good luck,
