Ubuntu Remotely Connect to MySQL Database

In order to remotely access a MySQL database in Ubuntu it's necessary to edit the following file; 


Find the following line; 

bind-address = 

Comment it out, and change it to the following; 

#bind-address = 

bind-address = 

You then need to restart the MySQL service using the following line; 

sudo service mysql restart 

You should now be able to remotley connect to the MySQL database (assuming you have already created a database user and granted the necessary permissions).
