I try to connect to database in a domain from my virtual machine. It works on XP, but somehow does not work on Win7 and quitting with: “OperationalError: (1042, “Can’t get hostname for your address”)”
Now I tried disable Firewall and stuff, but that doesn’t matter anyway. I don’t need the DNS resolving, which will only slow everything down. So I want to use the option “skip-name-resolve”, but there is no my.ini or my.cnf when using MySQLdb for Python, so how can I still use this option?
Thanks for your help -Alex
Add the following line(skip-name-resolve) in the /etc/mysql/my.cnf file
[mysqld] port = 3306 socket = /tmp/mysql.sock skip-locking skip-name-resolve
And restart the mysql server
