Hi,

Im kinda new to SQL of any flavour, but have installed MySQL as part of the XAMPP package on a box here to get a PHP package up and going...

Now, the packages etc are all running fine, but whenever I go to phpMyAdmin, I get a warning message :

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.

Ive checked the MySQL bin directory for the .conf files and added a password into the right (well, they look right to me :) ) sections but phpMyAdmin still shows that message.

Can any give me a pointer where to look to solve this issue ? :)

TIA

Heh think Im all sorted now :) Managed to lock down SQl and phpMyAdmin.
Just needed to add password to all root accounts (i had onyl done one). phpMyAdmin just needed authentication type changed to http to prevent users accessing it.

Im loving XAMPP, lets me play/trial with all those nice PHP packages out there without having to upload them to my site first and then hassle my host to make new databases etc for me.
