FUDforum provides out of the box support for MySQL databases.
One of the following PHP drivers must be implemented to enable MySQL support:
CREATE USER 'fuduser'@'%' IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password AS '***'; GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER, LOCK TABLES ON *.* TO 'fuduser'@'%';
Edit /etc/my.cnf and configure one of the below methods to shield your database from external access:
Method 1 (binding SQL just to interface I/0):
[mysqld] [...] bind-address=127.0.0.1
This will cause the daemon to just to listen on the loopback device, so no one in the network will have an idea that there's a daemon at all, because they are accessing the machine from a different interface (eth0, eth1 etc). Makes sense where SQL and httpd are hogging up the same machine.
Method 2 (disabling TCP/IP completely):
[mysqld] [...] skip networking
Now SQL only listens on local unix sockets, a solution preferred over the first one, because it's always better to reduce the amount of services on a machine (even if they're running on loopback) since it makes it less vulnerable.
