- Plesk for Linux
Website is down. Remote MySQL server is configured in Plesk.
The following error is shown in
[Warning] IP address '203.0.113.2' could not be resolved: Name or service not known
MySQL server unsuccessfully tries to perform a reverse DNS lookup for IP address of the Plesk server. The reason of message is that the IP address of host connecting to MySQL has no reverse lookup zone. Such message also can mean that someone is trying to brute force into MySQL database.
1. Login to the MySQL server over SSH
2. Configure the server to skip reverse DNS lookup, by adding 'skip-name-resolve' option to [mysqld] section of
/etc/my.cnf configuration file.
3. Restart MySQL server to apply the new setting:
# service mysqld restart
