19 Feb 2008 mysql_secure_installation — Improve MySQL Installation Security

Posted by

This program enables you to improve the security of your MySQL installation in the following ways:

  • You can set a password for root accounts.
  • You can remove root accounts that are accessible from outside the local host.
  • You can remove anonymous-user accounts.
  • You can remove the test database, which by default can be accessed by anonymous users.

Invoke mysql_secure_installation without arguments:

shell> mysql_secure_installation

The script will prompt you to determine which actions to perform.
