Disabling security in XAMPP

Hello, again!

This time my question is how to disable security in XAMPP 1.6.6.

Explanation: I wanted to protect my MySQL root user whith a password thrue a security script that comes with XAMPP (in my case, it is located in /opt/lampp/lampp security). I set the password, but instead doing thaht, the script encyrpted the whole XAMPP server. Well, now I can't access/connect to MySQL via netowrk (I need that for my radio station).

In the script, there is not much to do. It only says: "MySQL: Is not accessable via network." and then it moves to some ProFTPd stuf.

Does anybody know how to disable this "brick"?

Thank you in advance,

Why not look at the script and reverse what it has done.

Thank you for your answer.

How do I do that? Do you mean to look at the source of the script with Nano or some other text editor?

Thank you in advance,


lampp, mysql, server, xampp
