Hello Kevin and all,

I was following your tutorial just great 9+ a friend fo mine installed phpadmin so that I can interact with the sql tables on the browser). everything was great until my friend told me to do the following:

1. go to phpadmin.
2. i'll see my databases in the left frame. one of them is called mysql
3. under this mysql db there are tables and one of them is called user
4. this user tables contains host/username/password and other rows. he told me to change the default of host/username/password to % and to drop all other rows leaving just host/username/password
5. after doing so he said i should reload mysql

so i followed all that and then even restarted my computer. connected to mysql went to phpadmin and ALL tables that I had created (including the jokes one) were gone.. all of them...

what happened ?
