Who is user pma?


Recommended Posts

Was following the instructions for adding another user here http://wiki.uniformserver.com/index.php/MySQL_Security


Got into phpmyadmin then privileges tab top of the list is a user named "pma" has no global privileges, I dont recall creating this user or does it come from the factory with it?


Ok to delete user pma ?

PhpMyAdmin puts this user in by default. It is described as the "control user," and it has only restricted access to the pmadb. This db is used exclusively by phpMyAdmin. If you search on "phpMyAdmin pma user", you'llfind several articles that describe this user and what it can and cannot do.


The short answer is, no, don't delete it, but be sure it has a good password.
