I need help on installing WordPress as I am encountering problems with the connections. I have a new site on a specific IP with the same machine and MySQL is under another IP. According to the articles and forums that I’ve read, I may need to open MySQL and accept outside connections. But I don’t know how to do that.
Can someone send me ways on how to accept MySQL connections and use it on my default IP.
Installing WordPress with problems in my connections
These are the commands you need to type, to be able to allow access from outside connections in MySQL. Login using SSH. This is if the server is outside your data centers. After logging in, you need to edit the my.cnf. Once opened, locate a line that states, skip networking, is commented.
At this point you need to get the file saved and closed. Ensure granting of access of remote IP. Logout the open the port 3306. After finishing, make sure you test if it is really working.
These simple steps will get you access the outside connection.
