MySQL 5.6 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Configuring the MySQL Server to Permit IPv6 Connections

5.1.11.2 Configuring the MySQL Server to Permit IPv6 Connections

The MySQL server listens on a single network socket for TCP/IP connections. This socket is bound to a single address, but it is possible for an address to map onto multiple network interfaces. To specify an address, set bind_address=addr at server startup, where addr is an IPv4 or IPv6 address or a host name. For details, see the bind_address description in Section 5.1.7, “Server System Variables”.
