I want to enable remote access to my MySQL server so I've set the bind-address option under [mysqld], which looks like:
[mysqld] datadir=/var/lib/mysql socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock user=mysql bind-address=**.**.**.66 port=3306 # skip-networking # Disabling symbolic-links is recommended to prevent assorted security risks symbolic-links=0
When I comment bind-address, the server starts normally. However, when I comment it out it won't restart. The port is open and listens.
Can you please help me sort this out? Thanks
**.**.**.66isn't a valid IP address...
