    In my opinion this should be left off as default.

    Most of the setups don't need to expose the Mysql port for an external connection and it is more secure to left it off.

    If needed for a reason it can be opened manually.

    On most cases will be not needed and is more secure to have it off....

    Thanks

    FYI, this is for outbound port 3306 not inbound port 3306 so it isn't to allow access to Centmin Mod's MariaDB MySQL port 3306, but to allow Centmin Mod server to connect to an external remote MySQL server on port 3306. This only allows CSF Firewall TCP_OUT and TCP6_OUT outbound 3306 port to connect to external remote MySQL servers.
