History is a relentless master. It has no present, only the past rushing into the future. To try to hold fast is to be swept aside.

Mysql Secure Installation for non default socket.

Mysql Secure Installation for non default socket.

SECURING MYSQL SERVER –

mysql_secure_installation is a script useful to

  • set root password
  • disallowing root login remotely
  • removing anonymous user accounts after first installation
  • removing test database which can be accessed by any users

Above script would work for default socket location i.e /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

If the server is started with a non-default socket location, mysql_secure_installation does not consider any socket options you specify and the script would fail (For example -> mysql_secure_installation –socket=/mysql/socket/mysql.sock)

We should also consider this situation in case if we need to install more than one instance of mysql on a single server.

For the secure installation script to work for a non default socket location, we need to create a softlink /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock -> <non-default socket>

1) ln -s /mysql/socket/mysqld.sock /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

Then run mysql_secure_installation directly

2) mysql_secure_installation
