I have installed XAMPP (ver 1.6.4) on my system running OpenSuse 10.2.
Installation process went smoothly. I ran-
to set passwords for XAMPP and MySql.
During the security setup, I disabled access to MySql and XAMPP over the network.
Now (after running "lampp security", when I open in a browser -
the security page shows everything as secure except MySql. It says -
MySQL is accessible by the network
This is a potential or at least theoretical security leak. And if you're mad about security you should disable the network interface of MySQL. UNSECURE
My problems are-
1. phpMyAdmin is accessible from other LAN computers. HOW TO DISABLE NETWORK ACCESSIBILITY OF PHPMYADMIN
2. XAMPP IS STILL ACCESSIBLE FROM NETWORK (in browser from any other lan computer when given URL is http://my IP number) HOW TO DISABLE NETWORK ACCESSIBILITY TO XAMPP? is there any other method?
3. HOW TO DISABLE ACCESS TO MYSQL (DATABASES AND EVERYTHING) FROM NETWORK.
Thanks in advance.
