    Does MySql maintain a default login?

    I ask because why using MySql on my local host when I boot up I am able to create and delete databases without being asked to define a user or to enter the password which I set up. So it seems that the security is not really there.

    By default MySQL installs itself with no password for Root, you need to go into the mysql.user tbale and give root a password.
    Please don't PM me with questions.
    Use the forums, that is what they are here for.
