Post your question to a community of 469,361 developers. It's quick & easy.

close mysql port or bind it to only localhost or ...

I only use mysql locally. I want to

- close port 3306 if possible (like starting Oracle database without
starting listener),
- or bind it to localhost only (like what sendmail does),
- or next best thing

for security.

I am on redhat 9, and use mysql 3.23.55. I can upgrade if newer
version provide the functionality.

Thanks.
