Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

Positive Negative,

You might seriously consider not using 'root at localhost' as well since most
php scripts read the username/password information in clear text on a
nobody:nobody read filesystem. IOW other people can read your files.

Possibly making the username/password somewhat cryptic, say writing a
function to "dizzify" the usually clear text or at least setting up a
specific user/pass combination for specific databases is a very good idea.



At least this is SOMEWHAT more protective then:


2 cents.
