    What if MySQL administrator account is not called root? I mean, it’s not like `root` if of any special meaning to mySQL.

    This whole series is awesome, and a big help. I had inherited a set up with phpMyAdmin with every virtual host using root access to the databases, including my live site. What I did and would recommend is that if your site is being used while you’re taking these steps, create the users and their passwords first, test them, then update your php code to use the new usernames. Then when you put the bash on root access you don’t have to scramble to get the new connection code in place.
