Mysql can't stop from control panel after password change

Postby ti-Pat » 07. October 2006 01:27

Hi
I changed the mysql password for the user "pma" and
after I was not able any more to close mysql from the control panel.

but I'm able to close it from the mysql_stop.bat by modifying this line :
Code: Select all
mysql\bin\mysqladmin --user=pma --password=*** shutdown


What must I change to be able to stop mysql from the control panel ? (without removing the password, for security reason)

Thanks in advance

You don't need to change the password of the user pma just leave it as it was.

It could be asked - 'where in the XAMPP documentation did it tell you to change the pma user's password to enhance the security'?

Just follow the instructions in the XAMPP Welcome Page re security and all will be as secure as you can make it

You only need to add or change the password of the root user and then you will be fine.
