Revision of FAQ from Wed, 10/27/2010 - 01:07





I am attempting to determine the specific actions needed to secure the mysql database when you get the "Dummy connection failed to fail" message, without running "mysql_secure_installation"...

So far I've determined you should run the following queries:

DELETE FROM mysql.user WHERE User='';
DELETE FROM mysql.db WHERE Db LIKE 'test%';

Once I confirm this works I will edit the FAQ to include these commands


That and a FLUSH PRIVILEGES; seems to do it.

I'll be testing it a few times more, then update the FAQ and Automatic Install instructions.

Need help?


The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.

The revisions let you track differences between multiple versions of a post.
