I'm trying to configure a freshly installed mysql server to listen on port 3306.
I've removed skip_networking, I have bind-address=127.0.0.1 and it completely ignores the config...
When I try
SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'skip_networking' I see it's still frustratingly ON.
netstat -na | grep mysql indicates it's listening on a random port, and yes, I do have port=3306 configured...
Exact line is:
unix 2 [ ACC ] STREAM LISTENING 45816 /var/run/mysqld/mysq d.sock
Running on Ubuntu 12.04.2
Am I missing something REALLY obvious?
