I am a new user of xampp.
How can I lock down phpmyadmin in xampp? I think it has been breached because someone wiped out one of my databases. Also, my root privileges in mysql.user were reduced to read only and a new user name admin was added with full privileges. Because of that I couldn't restore my database which I back up nightly with mysqldump because access was denied!
I tried starting mysql with the grant trick to allow editing but no luck. Finally I got control back by replacing the three files beginning with the name "user" in the xampp/mysql/data/mysql directory with ones I had backed up earlier.
I tried to rename the phpmyadmin directory to abc, and it no longer worked by accessing http://www.myserver.com/abc/index.php like it did when the directory was named d:\xampp\phpmyadmin. I would like to rename the directory and restrict IPs. I know this should be easy but I am missing something in the configuration somewhere.
Also, when I go to the security directory for xampp it says that everything is secure. I am running Windows Server 2003.
