WAMP Instalation





Possum
Hi

I just installed WAMP...

But I get this message from phpMyAdmin


Quote:
Your configuration file contains settings (root with no password) that correspond to the default MySQL privileged account. Your MySQL server is running with this default, is open to intrusion, and you really should fix this security hole.



What can I do to fix this



Cheers Possum

login to mysql client and change password of root.

Hi

I reinstalled WAMP. I gave all the root users that WAMP created a password.


I then went to config.inc and put that password in..

Quote:

// features (pmadb)
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'config'; // Authentication method (config, http or cookie based)?
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['user'] = 'root'; // MySQL user
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['password'] = '********'; // MySQL password (only needed
// with 'config' auth_type)


This method worked..

Cheers Possum..

Heh, I've been playing around on my own local webserver and had the same problem too. Reminded me to get back to a good practice of changing default passwords.

not needed if you use your server locally only and don't open ports for the outside world. Passwords are only needed if you can actually keep people out with them.
