3. How

[mysqld]

# Skip reverse DNS lookup of clients
skip-name-resolve

Code:
sudo service mysql restart &&
sudo mysql -u root -p

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'xbmc'@'%';





3b. Install Squid

Note: If you plan to setup the complete 5 User XBMC its recommended to do this step now and skip it in the next tutorial.

Code:
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2049808/xbmc-server-setup.sh &&
chmod 755 xbmc-server-setup.sh &&
./xbmc-server-setup.sh
