WAMP Server (MYSQL) Front login.

How would i get wamp to display a login to the database? at the minuite you can load it directly from localhost but does not have a login.. obviously i want this for security reasons when it goes live, if this something you do now or when it goes live? and if so how do i do it??

Also what is the standard connection for PHP files regarding wamp

obviously the server name is localhost but what is the default password?

many thanks for your time.

I do not know WAMP, but in XAMPP the default password for the root user is empty, you have to configure it manually by editing the XAMPP configuration file.

The online version of the database will have another login and another password, which you would have to provide through the php script connecting to mysql (with mysql_connect() function)

no doubt that the online databse will have the user name and password.
But if you are going to launch this solution on your own server in that case you have to change the password.

thanks ill try using the following...

<?php
//error_reporting(E_ALL);
// CONNECTION AND SELECTION VARIABLES FOR THE DATABASE
$db_host = "localhost";
$db_name = "DATABASENAME HERE";        
$db_user = "root";
$db_word = "";

// OPEN A CONNECTION TO THE DATA BASE SERVER
if (!$db_connection = mysql_connect("$db_host", "$db_user", "$db_word"))
{
   $errmsg = mysql_errno() . ' ' . mysql_error();
   echo "<br/>NO DB CONNECTION: ";
   echo "<br/> $errmsg <br/>";
}

if (!$db_sel = mysql_select_db($db_name, $db_connection))
{
   $errmsg = mysql_errno() . ' ' . mysql_error();
   echo "<br/>NO DB SELECTION: ";
   echo "<br/> $errmsg <br/>";
   die('NO DATA BASE');
}
// IF WE GOT THIS FAR WE CAN DO QUERIES
