    I keep getting the following error when trying to setup a port forward port 3306:

    What's this about?

    Try version 1.19. Erase nvram before and after upgrade. Do not restore old backups..

    Why are you port forwarding MySQL anyways? Bad idea IMO.

    I run Tomato 1.19, installed it as you suggested, and don't see this problem. And if you open 3306, guarantee mySQL Bot etc will come knocking.

    I figured it might be time to upgrade, but I've always been of the mindset "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"... Time to flash, I'll report back.

    p.s. As for the concerns about port forwarding MySQL, it will only be ON (open) for short durations for testing purposes, I don't plan on leaving it on 24/7. But thanks for the heads up :)

    Really I can't use my backups ?
    I'd hate to have to reconfigure all my settings again? Is their a safe way to restore my backup so it won't cause conflicts and I still don't have to manually re-configure the settings via the webGUI?

    I wouldn't recommend restoring a backup from a configuration which apparently causes problems for you. You'll be back in the same boat as before, or even worse..
