For example, I created a user named simply "g". When I attempt to remove the user using the graphical interface, it reports:
#1470 - String 'g&amp;#27;localhost' is too long for user name (should be no longer than 16)
The string should rightly just be the letter 'g', right?
Likewise, if I create a user named 'harry' and then attempt to delete him by the same graphical method, it reports similarly:
#1470 - String 'harry&amp;#27;localhost' is too long for user name (should be no longer than 16)
On the other hand, if I issue this SQL command in the SQL Query tab:
- Code: Select all
drop user harry@localhost;
...then it works just fine. Likewise for dropping user 'g'.
I'm using XAMPP version 1.7.7 and Windows XP sp3.
What could be causing this problem?
