Username question

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

Username question

Postby TENOCH » 26. January 2014 21:33

I just installed XAMPP and I am setting up the security configuration. I have entered my password for MySQL and checked to see if PHP and MySQL is secure which they are. The status on the XAMPP page says it is unsecure. I go back to the security console and it is asking for a user name and a password. How do I know what my user name is and if I need to create one then where do I need to go to make one? Any help would be great. Thanks.

If you use XAMPP as local development or testing environment (which is the only supported environment) there is no need to secure anything because you are secure behind your routers firewall. No need to confuse yourself.

But okay. The xamppsecurity page shows all the information you are missing:

MYSQL SECTION: "ROOT" PASSWORD
MySQL SuperUser: root
New password: [ ]

So it is obvious (for me) that you set a password for a user named root.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!
