I have a question to which the answer I am sure is simple: I have had a server up and running for about 4 months now running ISPC3, primary functions are Web Serving and Email. This server is named mx1.myisp.com. Using a slightly tailored version of Falko's Ubuntu 8.10 / ISPC3 setup, I have configured a second server, mx2.myisp.com I have done everything but install ISPConfig. What I am hoping is to devise some sort of replication / failover setup. But I have hit a roadblock - it's a very simple problem. I know what the problem is, I just would like verification on how to correct it. I need to setup up the DB on MX1 to allow MX2 to access it, so that I can add the second server. From an SSH terminal on MX2: Code: mysql -h mx1.myisp.com -u root -p The output is as follows: Code: ERROR 1130 (00000): Host 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server From an SSH terminal on MX1: Code: netstat -tap | grep mysql The output is as follows: Code: tcp 0 0 *:mysql *:* LISTEN 4275/mysqld Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I searched the site, google and the ubuntu forums, wasn't able to find exactly what I was looking for.
