  • blowfish_secret

    Hi
    I'm running a php config file that is attempting to configure a database. This is part of a package, not something I've written.

    The setup instructions for the app say i need to send a "grant all privileges ..." command

    I'm attempting to do this using phpMyAdmin, and it's saying:

    "The configuration file now needs a secret passphrase (blowfish_secret)."

    on a forum I found a msg " ....I looked online and the solution is simple, edit the config.inc.php file the line: etc....

    So the first question is, how do I find/edit said config.inc.php file? I can't see it in the directory structure when I ftp in and look at the files.

    ps: this is on a windows hosting service

    config.inc.php is in the root directory of the PHPMyAdmin web files. The directory is different on each OS.

    the blowfish_secret phrase is very similar to MD5 + Salting your passwords, it's definitely recommended you set the blowfish phrase as soon as you can.

      Hello,

      I would request you to please submit a support request along with your domain name and the name of PHP application that you are trying to install. Adding your MySQL DB name, its user & password will help us to fix the problem faster.
