    I would like to set "skip-name-resolve" to have no name-resolve in mysql. But if i put it in in my.cnf it kills the whole mailsystem. No mail kann be send or recieved anymore. Does it not work with ispconfig configuration?

    skip-name-resolve makes MySQL authentication impossible for all accounts that use a hostname or localhost and therefore software that connects from localhost like postfix will stop working. So setting skip-name-resolves makes no sense as it must break the authentication system for all accounts that dont use IP addresses.

    HelloTill , thanks for the info :)
    Is there a way to overcome this? How we can use accounts with IP addresses?

    Hello Till,
    I am interested in a solution here, too.
    Because with "skip-name-resolve" we an use fail2ban for mysql-access...
    Or is there a different solution for that?

    Answered in #3 already. I'll rephrase it: Disabling a function in MySQL that is required by ISPConfig will cause ISPConfig to fail, so it's up to you to decide if you want to use ISPConfig further or not. And skip-nameresolve has no influence on accounts with IP addresses, it makes a difference for accounts which uses hostnames and that's a feature used by ISPConfig.
