i am using phpmyadmin; i created a database; now i want to locate the username and password for this new database i created. note, i am not sys admin, i am only the developer, but i do have access to create db on mysql in phpmyadmin. does my sys admin needs to tell me the username and password to access this db, or i can telnet and get it?
In MySQL creating a database doesn’t automatically create a user to go with it.
You must explicitly create the user and grant acess.
Steps for phpmyadmin GUI:
Select your Database name -> Privileges (here you can see your Privileges).
if you want change password click on the edit privileges icon in the action column
You can access that database with the user/password used to login on the phpMyAdmin.
You can also create new users (if you have permission to) under the tab Privileges > Add new User. Here you can create pairs of user-database with the same name and auto-permission-granting.
In your situation, it is highly likely that the login you used to create the database can be used to access the database.
