Hello there, I'm a little confused about XAMPP user authentication ...
I am running XAMPP on Windows XP, and when I sign in to XAMPP I've been using the 'root' ID.
But I don't want to use 'root' anymore ... I want to keep that ID sealed away, for emergency use only.
So I created a new ID 'secadm' in phpMyAdmin, and that new ID works just fine for both MySQL and phpMyAdmin admin tasks.
But if I try to sign in to XAMPP with my new 'secadm' ID it doesn't work, it only accepts 'root'.
How can I set up 'secadm' to sign into XAMPP instead of 'root' ...?
EDIT: OK, i just found http://localhost/security/xamppsecurity.php - which allows me to define my new ID. But it seems only one ID can be authorised to access XAMPP, as once I'd added my new ID, the old 'root' ID stopped working. Is that how things are meant to work ... just one ID is authorised to access XAMPP ...? Thanks!
