    Im getting this message on WHM:

    The MySQL service is currently configured to listen on all interfaces: (bind-address=*)Configure bind-address=127.0.0.1 in /etc/my.cnf, or close port 3306 in the server’s firewall.

    How can i make this configuration?

    thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    Did you add that option to your /etc/my.cnf file for a specific reason? If not, you can manually remove the "bind-address" entry in your /etc/my.cnf file via the command line and then restart the MySQL service.

    Thank you.
