Thumbs up

thanks for your reply Cssab, and about hostname, actually iam used computer name from Might and magic creatures games

and about uncomment bind_address at /etc/mysql/my.cnf, i had do that before and opened port mysql from the world, since i still didn't know how to filter mysql access at my.cnf bind address entry.

I tought i can use firewall filtering to do that, but if there are any other ways to filter mysql access with my.cnf rules, I would really appreciate it

root at server2.example.com with same password

Then you can log into phpmyadmin and remove those two users when you have finished installing ISPConfig3

To open and close ports in your router then you can use a browser to log into your router interface. given above example the address would be
