I ran “SELECT * from mysql.user;” the command generated a
list. For root it showed in the host
column local host, the second row for root showed the name of the web server
the mysql install is on. The third and
fourth rows showed no users, however the third and fourth rows showed in the
host columns localhost and the server name, respectively.
The fifth and sixth lines showed the first non root user I created
and for this user it showed in the host Colum the % character, and the other
line for this user showed localhost as the host.
The seventh line shows the second non root user I created –
it has just one line and shows localhost as the host. All the rest of the users I created
% character in the host column.
No IP addresses are listed anywhere.
