Mysql Error: Lost Connection to Mysql during query
I am a newbie to linux and I just manage to get some basic commands running on a Red Hat 8 box. So please be detailed in explaining to me. I finished installing Red hat 8 along with Mysql, PHP, Apache etc. I am not able to connect to the mysql database from any machine on the network though I am able to log on to mysql locally on the linux box. I am also able to access mysql via php installed on the same box. But from any other mac on the network it gives an error "Lost connection to mysql during query". I have checked up the mysql users table and it enables all hosts (%) with the root user name and null pass. Can anyone give me any possible solns. Also I am able to connect to mysql via ssh login as well.
