MySQL comes with no password on the root account, and several no-password accounts.  Anyone can log into your MySQL server.

The instructions for securing this are in the MySQL Tutorial.  This involves entering a few commands, and should not take more than a minute.

If you want to run MySQL as it is, you can always ‘bind’ MySQL to only listen on ‘localhost’.  The instructions for this are also in the MySQL Tutorial.

In the next revision of the download package, this will be applied.  But, as you can imagine, everyone will have the same password initially.  So you will still need to correct this.

How about the front page of this site?!

Were it says Building PHP, MySQL, Perl, Apache, etc...

The instructions are there.

Unless I'm missing something your trying to say.

You need to post more info, just saying you have a problem does not help anyone.  Tells us exactly what is happening.

And are you talking about the d/l Package or something you are doing on your own?
