It is customary sometimes to share the part of the database from sandbox to a fellow developer or to access it from the other machine – umm.. is it not how the servers are doing it?? what are you talking about 😉
Anyway here is a simple note to make it happen.1. We need to bind the machine name for the server. to do that
open your my.cnf – inside the /etc/mysql/my.cnf for debianish machines and search for the
[mysqld] and add the following
bind-address = your ip address goes here
you can find your ip address from
then save the file and restart your mysql
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart
There are ways to assign for a specified user from the specified ip addresses as well.
Like if you have database db1 and user1 from ip address 126.96.36.199 then
grant select, insert, update on db1.* to 'user1'@'188.8.131.52'
