Is it common to have to run MySQL skip-grant-tables to get away from
myriad ERROR 1045 "Access denied for: 'user blah.host.host' (Using
password = YES)" errors, trying to connect to a snort DB off on
I was trying to get my firewall box to do this:
output database: alert, mysql, user=blah dbname=snort host=sparky encoding=hex detail=full
to go and send the alerts off to another box for analysis.
This is after _hours_ tweaking mysql's user and host tables with
passwords and users and FQDN's and IP addresses, and "mysqladmin
flush-privileges" and "flush-hosts" over and over again.
So I threw up my hands and added skip-grant-tables to /etc/my.cnf and
restarted mysqld and off we went, first try.
Now that it works, I guess I don't care, but I was just wondering...
In those days, you could not buy a $2000 200MHz Pentium server.
