xampp - get rid of mysqlrootpasswd


Hi,
when using xamppsecurity.php there seems to be no way to again
get rid of the mysqlrootpasswd after it once hast been set, so
do you know a way to achieve that?

Thx,
Regards

And this is a PHP question - how? PHP doesn't have any security.

Did you check the MySQL docs on how to change the root password in
MySQL? It's available online at http://www.mysql.com.

People tend to chunk in certain groups, while other ones got no
traffic for days... Is that too much traffic here for your taste?

Yep, there is a batch-file, but, unfortunately, it does not work ;)

Thank you,

And if you ask in the proper group, you're much more likely to get a
good answer.

This group is for PHP questions - it's not a catch-all for any question
someone might have. That's why I'm recommending you try the MySQL docs.
You can easily change passwords via the MySQL command line prompt.

Of course, you can also do it in phpMyAdmin.
