MySQL Port Change


#1

Hi there,

I’m trying to connect to my database from another server which is set up to run a game (Team Fortress 2, as it happens). A portion of this server is also used for a MySQL install, and I’ve been unable to connect to my dreamhost MySQL, and I’ve deduced it’s most likely to be due to port conflict of some sort.

In short, is it possible to change the listen port from 3306 on the dreamhost databases? :3

have you set up the allowed hosts

Yes. I have multiple connections to the database (3, actually), so that is not the issue, I can configure that quite happily.
