my.cnf file I can find
#bind-address = 127.0.0.1. Is changing it to
bind-address = % will do the job?
If the bind-address and skip-networking options are not specified, MySQL listens by default on all interfaces, so you should just make sure that those 2 options are commented.
You can also force MySQL to listen on all interfaces explicitly by specifying:
bind-address = 0.0.0.0
If you want to make it to listen to only 1 IP address, you can do this by:
bind-address = your.ip.addr.ess
