This is a common question I see on here frequently. I have a MYSQL database - how the heck do make it usable by other local machines on the network!?
Setting up MySQL can be extremely easy, and there are plenty of packages out there that make it that way. However, if you have a little bit more advanced setup, such as a local server on your network that you use, you may want something a bit more custom. Today we are going to work with Ubuntu, which will be our server. Keeping that in mind, we will be setting up MySQL so that we can access it from other computers in our local network.
