I have a working MariaDB 10.2 running on my CentOS 6 server. I can connect to the DB from another machine on the LAN.
Out of curiosity, I wanted to revisit how this was made possible. Everything I read mentions using
bind-address in the
my.cnf file, but when I examine this file, there is no such directive. Neither is there anything in the files
Is network access a default in this case, or is there some other mysterious directive?
