Root lost privileges
Posted on 2008-02-11
The root user of mysql server lost all privilages, Even GRANT ALL ON *.* TO 'root'@'localhost' doesnt work.
This is my local machine running windows XP SP2, Mysql 5.xx.
This is not a question on how to fix it, i know how, this is a question of why it happened.
I have a 3 year old that apparently was messing around with the machine a couple of days ago, but i kind of find it difficult to believe he could have revoked all privileges from mysql.
There was 1 other computer that connected to the network 3 days ago, could it be a virus ??
Could it be a hardware issue ?? One of the HDD failing somehow ?
