mariadb networked slackware-64-current


Hi.

Slackware64-current updated regulary.
Mariadb works excellent locally.
I wish to access it over network and Mariadb manual failed to work.
Mariadb after following the above manual do not work over network.
I've created a mariadb user with network access - 'user'@'%' with correct grants.

Putting:
Code:
[mysqld]
skip-networking=0
skip-bind-address
in any of:
/etc/my.cnf
/etc/my.cnf.d/server.cnf

do not enable network - port 3306 is not open.

And a naming mess - mariadb or mysqldb?
There are two services mysqld_safe and mariadb.
and all /usr/bin/mysql* are linked to mariadb* equivalents.
and rc.mysqld - instead rc.mariadb
Why?
After a long time mariadb existence mysql should vanish by now.


Mariadb manual mentioned above states:
Code:
mysqld --print-defaults
should return status:
Code:
./sql/mysqld would have been started with the following arguments:
--bind-address=127.0.0.1 --innodb_file_per_table=ON --server-id=1 --skip-bind-address ...
But on Slackware64-current there is no mysqld service, instead maridbd service:
Code:
root@ProBook ps -ae| grep mari
 1181 ?        00:00:00 mariadbd
root@ProBook mariadbd --print-default
bash: mariadbd: command not found
How can I enable mariadb network connections and prove it is working?

in /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld, did you modify

Code:
# To allow outside connections to the database comment out the next line.
# If you don't need incoming network connections, then leave the line
# uncommented to improve system security.
#SKIP="--skip-networking"

Thank you Martinus2u!

Fast and easy solution.

Mysql/Mariadb specific settings are domain of /etc/my.cnf & /etc/my.cnf.d/* as per the manuals.
So why this setting is in rc.d script? Did not even think about looking there.
Strange for Pat put it there. Must had a huge reason to make it nonstandard.

Not knowing the details but looking at the rc script, it might be that it isn't something that's configurable in a conf file and has to be used as a launch option on the commandline.
