newbie here - Issue: unable to establish remote connection to mariadb (mysql) on centos7 from a mac or a gscript - setup: I got 2 lamp machines: one test (107) and another one production (35) 107 - centos6.5 with mysql (vps in digitial ocean) 35 - centos7 with mariadb-server-5.5.52-1.el7.x86_64 (compute engine on gcloud) db,dbuser,dbpass and port (3306) same on both machines
- problem details: I can establish a remote and a jdbc connection to mysql on 107 (test server) from a mac using nc, mysqlworkbench and a gscript app; but when I try to get a connection going with 35 (prod server) with the same user/pass/db parameters I get this response: workbench: Can't connect to MySQL server on '184.108.40.206' (60) gscript (jdbc connection exception thrown): Failed to establish a database connection. Check connection string, username and password. nc on mac: ... (literally nothing after issuing the command nc <35's ip address> 3306
-What I tried: 1. https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/configuring-mariadb-for-remote-client-access/ my.cnf in 35 looks like this:
[mysqld] datadir=/var/lib/mysql socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock # Disabling symbolic-links is recommended to prevent assorted security risks symbolic-links=0 # Settings user and group are ignored when systemd is used. # If you need to run mysqld under a different user or group, # customize your systemd unit file for mariadb according to the # instructions in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Systemd #skip-networking bind-address = 0.0.0.0 [mysqld_safe] log-error=/var/log/mariadb/mariadb.log pid-file=/var/run/mariadb/mariadb.pid # # include all files from the config directory # !includedir /etc/my.cnf.d
- firewall-cmd looks like this (for active and public):
services: http https
services: dhcpv6-client http https ssh
- the dbuser its password is not the issue as I created the same user and password for the same database on both 107 and 35. the user has only usage privileges (select, update, delete, insert) and is set as % on both machines.
I've been on this for 3 days now and I'm not close to figure this out. any help is appreciated. what am I missing?
