Maybe this is a good or a bad question but in my Google research I wasn't able to find out a good answer (maybe because I suck at performing a good search). In a few words:
- can a DB be created without a user and/or owner?
I am trying to answer a question on Stack Overflow and the user has shared it DB configuration and something caught my attention:
$db['default']['hostname'] = 'localhost'; $db['default']['username'] = ''; $db['default']['password'] = ''; $db['default']['database'] = 'gotche'; $db['default']['dbdriver'] = 'mysqli';
The database does not have a username!
Regardless the DB used - which is in scenario is MySQL (don't know the version) - is this possible?
I don't think the username and password were removed for security reasons: It would be better to change it to something like
***** - in that case everyone would know there is a username/password but I can ask the user if that's the reason.
