Use mySQl setup from your virtual machine

Have you ever faced a situation where you want to use your MYSQl from your virtual machine. i,e your MYSQL set up is on the windows and your linux is on VM player and you want to use it rather than installing it again on linux box.

If yes, Then here is the solution.

My System configuration where I have tested.
OS : Windows 7
MYSQL: version 5.5 on windows
RHEL 5 on VM player


1 . Open MYSQL workbench 5
2.  Open your MYSQL from server Administrator.
3.  Goto Security -> Users and Privileges
4.  Replace 'localhost' with '%' in limited connectivity to host matching box.

And you are done here..:)

All credit goes to my Manager..Thanx a lot..:)
