Question

Remote connection with MySQL

Hi,

I have problem with remote connection to my MySQL database.

My changes in /etc/mysql/mysql.conf.d/mysqld.cnf

[mysqld]
.....
#bind-address           = 127.0.0.1

I also run this lines in mysql: mysql> CREATE USER ‘monty’@‘%’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘some_pass’; mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON . TO ‘monty’@‘%’ WITH GRANT OPTION; mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;

and finally: sudo service mysql restart

Unfortunelly I still cant’ connect with my database. What is the problem?

Hi @rubenlech

Can you check if MySQL is listening on all interfaces:

sudo lsof -iTCP -sTCP:LISTEN -P

And then let’s check the state of the firewall:

sudo ufw status
