Hello again Spud Milligan
Sorry for mangling your name!
I have corrected the changes I'd made earlier, per your instructions.
Can now Stop MySQL via Control Panel - much better, thanks!
"and now ...
the pma user is only read only and as secure as it will ever be
and you will be able to shut down MySQL in the usual way."
1. If the pma-user is only "read only" and as secure as it will ever be ...
then the pma-user is truly secure without a password, right?
can not write to User file, guaranteed by Apache Operating System?
Spud, if I may also ask you ...
1. Is it recommended to run Apache/MySQL as Windows Services or not?
2. Is it CORRECT that Apache runs in 2 Win Processes after Start Apache?
Windows Task Manager:
Image Name = Apache.exe User Name = SYSTEM Mem Usage = 21,252k
Image Name = Apache.exe User Name = SYSTEM Mem Usage = 23,132k
Will definite bone up on my Forum 'search' technique, starting with security. Yes, there is so much to this but I'm really enjoying it!
Many thanks again Spud Milligan!
