    • mySQL not reachable over network


      first of all thanks for the great work everyone does with OMV and the plugins - i still use it for several years and it never let me down! :)

      Unfortunatelly i now have a problem with mySQL plugin after setting up my new NAS.

      Everyting on OMV side seems to work well (plugin installed and enabled, root password set, webSQL etc.) but i can´t connect to the database over network.

      On OMV network side i just have a simple configuration - static IP, that´s all. No firewall rules etc.

      Here´s a list of things that i already tried:

      - disabled windows firewall on SQL client
      - firewall rule for incoming traffic on OMV port 3306
      - reinstalled SQL plugin
      - several SQL users
      - installed OMV on a virtual machine for testing purposes - same problem here with blank installation ?(

      Now i don´t know what else to do for fixing this problem. I hope someone here can help me. :thumbup:

      FYI: i want to use mySQL for central Kodi database. I tried to connect to mysql with kodi and with MySQL query browser (to be sure that the problem is not caused by kodi)

      Thanks in advance!
    • hey guys,

      I'm facing the same problem.
      I changed binding adress to and changed host to % for my kodi mysql user.
      But still, I am getting error "ERROR 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (111)".

      Do you have any further advice?

      Thanks in advance :)

      /EDIT: Ok ... done ... I tried to change the binding directly in the my.cnf file and not in the web admin ... :P

      Any change in the web interface and it will be changed back. Changing my.cnf directly is not recommended.
