Question

Do I need my key to login to mariadb?

I am trying to make an application that connects remotely to my mariadb server. I cannot connect via mysql-workbench or my app that I am making. I tried this tutorial and it did not work for me.

Hi @sfxworks

You need to open your firewall, since that’s activated by default on CentOS: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-firewall-using-firewalld-on-centos-7

If you already did that, then make sure you restarted MariaDB and then have a look at which services are listening on the interfaces:

sudo lsof -iTCP -sTCP:LISTEN -P
