MySQL Security and Database Ownership

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am trying to make mysql more secure by not having databases created and listed under root. I have created my own account with all the necessary privileges. However, if I create a database whilst logged in with my account, later on when I exit and re-enter the Control Centre the database I created is listed under root. Is there an option in the setup that causes this to happen or am I just not doing something correctly?

 

I am using MySQL 4.0.16 and Mysql Control Centre 0.93.

 

Thanks

RB

sounds like the way the mysql control centre is setup. can you edit its connection information to your user?

I think I\'ve managed to resolve the issue.

 

I went into the edit option for the account I created in Control Center. Selected the databases tag and made sure the database created was only attributed to the account. For the root account I also made sure I removed the database from the list of used databases.

 

Thanks for the response[/b]
