    MYSQL Server resets my password?

    Hello,

    I keep on finding that my password for phpmyadmin no longer works. I have reset it a few times now but after a new boot I am locked out again?

    Thanks

    Sounds like there is something/someone trying an old or incorrect password and is locking your account. Is it just a particular account or for more than one?

    Perchance is it the "root" account and is the box visible from the net?

    It was the root account, I only have one account, I am using lamp to test locally. I have not configured lamp to be visible on the net, but I am not 100% sure if it is, would I just find out the ip address and give it a go?

    I had my sites set up outside of www/var folder, but have since completely removed apache2/phpmyadmin and am in the default folder. I am no longer being locked out of Phpmyadmin

    Are there security steps I should take in regards to my personal folders that exist on my Xubuntu setup when running LAMP?
