mysql not open for networking
I have mysql running on an Ubuntu Server 9.10
Running "telnet localhost 3306" shows that mysql is alive and responding.
Running the same command from a different machine gives:
>telnet vprod 3306
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
So, I stopped mysql and started a dummy server on port 3306 and guess what ... it WAS accessible!
definitely not a firewall problem.
logging into mysql "mysql -p -r ..." and then using "SHOW VARIABLES;" shows that skip_networking=OFF
I ran out of ideas ...
any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Edit the file /etc/mysql/my.cnf
Look for the line:
bind-address = 127.0.0.1
Either comment out the line, delete it, or change it to:
bind-address = 0.0.0.0
Then restart mysql.
Also, you need to check the mysql privileges. Typically, you use something like
grant all privileges on databasename.* to someuser@localhost identified by 'somepassword';
I think it's better to limit the access, change @localhost to @clientsaddress
bind-address = in my.cnf is the key here.
