trying to make a 1and1 root server a DB server....
Is this even possible to use the server as a DB only server and use my windows dedicated server through 1and1 as an appllication / webserver running php / IIS, I've been searching online and enabled port 3306 in the firewall, commented out the skip-networking in my.cnf and restarted but I still can't seem to connect remotely,
Is this something that should be done? can it be done?
is there a walkthrough somewhere online , I found a thread on this site but after following the steps I still can't connect, can someone point me in the right direction
