Suspicious host name "ec2amaz-1qpqh3j", Full Privileges

Postby Mugé » 06. October 2019 15:16

Suspicious host name "ec2amaz-1qpqh3j", Full Privileges, NO Password in latest XAMPP version, User Account.

I have downloaded Version 7.3.9 XAMPP for Windows yesterday to my local PC. As I was going to set a password, I realized a host name as above with full privileges and no password. Does anyone have any explanation?
I downloaded the installer version.

This is to bring Attention for review / explanation if any.
Thank you.

I have the same question/issue. I had uninstalled and then installed again and wonder if it might be related to that.

@elle The first reaction is that you take away all privileges and password protect that host. Then, after password protecting, you will need to manually enter your root password into >XAMPP >phpMyAdmin >config.inc.php . Where it states $cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true; change to false and enter your Password into where it says Password, because the default showed empty even after I password protected through the phpMyAdmin interface. Don't panic if you cannot get back into the phpMyAdmin. Just modify the above.

Hi,

Thanks for reporting this issue. "ec2amaz-1qpqh3j" is the hostname of the machine we used the last time we generated the default MariaDB data using mysql_install_db.exe. When you use this binary to generate the MariaDB data folder, it creates a 'root'@'hostname' entry.

As a workaround, you can manually remove that entry from phpMyAdmin. We will release a new revision of the installers fixing this issue.

Regards,
Gonzalo
