I want to use UniformServer as a development environment. Securing mysql-access with a password for the root user is not an issue here. So I configured the root user to have an empty password.

 

Every time I start UniController.exe, it prompts me to set a mysql root password, and does not allow an empty password. I don't understand why the UI application must enforce this. Can this behavior be changed?

I'm certain that I came across a setting somewhere where one could turn off that prompt, but I'll be darned if I can find it again :)

 

In the meantime, what I do is one of two things: 1) just cancel the prompt and carry on or 2) create a new password ONCE and get it over with :)

 

Cheers!

UPDATE:

 

Found it! :)

 

It's in us_config.ini which is located in \UniServer\home\us_config

 

Change this:

[GENERAL]
;Nag_user at start-up e.g change MySQL password
;
Nag_user=true
;

To this:

[GENERAL]
;Nag_user at start-up e.g change MySQL password
;
Nag_user=false
;

Save and restart UniController.
