Description cletus 2005-01-28 11:35:23 UTC
I think that there should be an additional field named "name of the
root-Account" or so on the form.

Many don't have an account on mySQL named 'root'.

Many exploits are using the root-Account and so it's better to delete this and
add another user with all privileges.
