I have installed a new virtual machine with VirtualBox with the operation system ubuntu 18.04.
Then I habe installed LAMP with "sudo apt-get install lamp-server^"

MySQL database works fine!

Also I have a portforwarding to

Now I want to access to the database in the virtual machine with workbench.
I have read that I must change the bind to "" in the file /etc/mysql/my.cnf

The content from my folder /etc/mysql is:

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 7 06:29 conf.d
-rw------- 1 root root 317 Apr 7 06:30 debian.cnf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 120 Jan 21 18:25 debian-start
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 Apr 7 06:29 my.cnf -> /etc/alternatives/my.cnf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 839 Aug 3 2016 my.cnf.fallback
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 682 Jan 12 2018 mysql.cnf
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 7 06:30 mysql.conf.d

The file my.cnf is a link.

Where must I change the parameter, that I can access from outside my virtual machine?

Thank you!
