Hello everyone,

I am having problems with my server when I change the bind address to a private IP rather than localhost or 127.0.0.1 in the /etc/mysql/my.cnf file.

I need to use a private number (192.168.1.5 for example) so I can enable remote mysql connections to programs on the intranet; however if I change my bind address to that, my email no longer works/can connect to the mySQL database.

Here is a rough idea of how my email is setup:
howtoforge.com/virtual-users-domains-postfix-courier-mysql-squirrelmail-debian-lenny

I am currently running Debian Lenny.

If you need anymore info, please ask and I would be happy to provide it.

Thanks in advance,
noop
