    PHP my admin

    Hi there,

    I've did a manual installation of MySql, PHP and PHPMyAdmin in a Mac Lion.

    When I go to localhost/phpmyadmin I get a window that says: Welcome to PHPMyadmin. Log in: Username and password. I've never set this during the installation. So where do I do this? Someone told me I could put root and no password, but this doesn't let me go in. Anyway, I really want to set a password.

    Thanks a lot.

    You did a manual installation of mysql. Did you go through the process of adding a new user?
    Never grow up. The instant you do, you lose all ability to imagine great things, for fear of reality crashing in.

    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/...rivileges.html is probably going to be the most beneficial thing i can point you at... basically, you need to secure the root user, the anonymous (blank) user, and probably create a new superuser for safety. PHPMyAdmin comes with a (configurable) setting which prevents you from using a blank login.

    The underpinnings of the MacOS IS Unix.

    The following link describes two ways to setup your PHPMyAdmin username and password.
