MySQL: Disable DNS Lookups

Posted on in Software

Powered By MySQLIn a small environment, there's very little reason to rely on DNS resolution inside MySQL. You can disable it by adding skip-name-resolve to your my.cnf or by using the --skip-name-resolve command line argument.

Remember that if you disable DNS lookups, you will need to set permissions using IP addresses rather than host names!
