    Securing MySQL server

    Q. I am using MySQL database server and my question is how do I secure mysql server?
    A. If you are using MySQL on a computer connected to the Internet then you need to secure MySQL server to avoid the most common security mistakes.
    Official MySQL site has a section that describes some general security issues to be aware of and what you can do to make your MySQL installation more secure against attack or misuse.

    There are many ways to secure a MySQL server but it depends on how the server is setup and maintained. A quick example as to what you may wish to add to the my.cnf on a shared host:
    Code:
    local-infile=0
    skip-networking
    symbolic-links=0
    Remember, never add stuff unless you know what it means and how it works.
