Hi

I've installed mysql4 internally and took off the "enable root access from remote machines" tick upon install.

We now want to be able to access root  from remote machines, how can i do this please?

Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config, and set

PermitRootLogin yes

If you refer to root in MySQL, then issue the MySQL command:

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'root'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Hi

in GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'root'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password'; is password our actual password or should i leave the text password?

sorry if it's dumb, i'm new to this.

Also on windows system so couldn't find a PermitRootLogin to change?
