    MySqL help ...


    Hello,

    I was trying to install phpBB and it requested a database, username and password.

    So , while logged in as root, I started up MySQL in Fedora and created a new database using the create database command.

    Now my question is .... How do I set users and passwords for this database so I can enter the correct info for the phpBB setup? Also, how do I ensure that this database is secure?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You should try to install "mysqlcc" which would give you a bunch of help with MySQL. "mysqlcc" is a GUI to MySQL which you can find here

    I figured it out already, but I think I will take a look at this application you speak of anyway.

    Thanks!

    the other application i use rather than mysqlcc is phpmyadmin. as long as you have apache with php and mysql support works a dream.

    Yes it is quite good as well, but mysqlcc is more an interactive software.
