I am trying to set up remote access to mysql on a headless server. From what I have read this can be done by installing phpmyadmin on the client pc. Is this all I need?
I have changed the entry in my.cnf "bind = localhost" to "bind = ipofserver". Not sure if this was necessary as it is an internal ip and I only need access from within the network.
I believe I must also change config.inc.php on the client to include details of the server I wish to connect with.
If someone could advise me whether I am on the right lines here as I do not want to do anything that will compromise the security of the server.
Thanks in advance.
