    phpMyAdmin show processes


    Hi There,

    I was wondering about the show processes option that appears in phpMyAdmin
    It seems to give you an option to kill a process. Would this kill the Mysql process itself?

    I have created a dummy user who basically only has select, insert and update priviliges but that show processes link still appears.
    Is there a way of removing this link or is it harmless when you don't have the right privileges?

    cheers

    It should be harmless if you don't got PROCESS privilege, and killing the MySQL server should only work if you got SHUTDOWN privilege.
    Possibly the users will only see *their own* processes, but won't see the others as it's required to have PROCESS to see other users processed.

    Thanks. I did some more investigation and that's more or less the same answer as I found.
