My pma user, made under root, doesn't have any privileges

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

My pma user, made under root, doesn't have any privileges

Postby BlizzofOZ » 01. April 2008 01:51

As I understand it, I had installed XAMPP under the root.

When I login phpmyadmin, under the pma user, I don't have any privileges to add/change/delete users.

Why? What could I have done wrong?

Why?

This special user don't need more privileges!

What could I have done wrong?

Read the docu :wink:, and use user "root" without password.

You are a busy guy...

I did some more searching and found this (which you are repeating yourself):
http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?t=15001&highlight=mysql+root

What I don't understand is where you login. Where do I login as root? Is it /localhost/phpmyadmin?

Also, I ran the security piece and added a password to MSQL... do I use that password for root?

BINGO again! Thanks, I'm in...

When I add a user, would this allow that user to access the server via the internet?
Ex: I have a friend John who I would like to be able to access my server to grab and put files.

He would web browse: http:/myhostname:portno/john/ ?

Can I make this user have a password?

Does the use john also have to be setup as a user in the OS?

Well, I was figure out how get a user and password using the httpd.conf file.

What now I don't understand is how/where (if at all) the sql database.

I'll ask that question in a new thread.
