My web server connects to MySQL mysql_connect("localhost", "root",
"passwd"); when I telnet as root it says [root@localhost /root]# I was
able to modify and update using one of those web baste MySQL PHP programs,
but this just started about a month ago and I have no idea what happened.

Yea I got this quote off one of these emails and it didn't say the person
who made the quote, but it fits me perfectly. =)

How does the web server you use access MySQL? Does it connect as
"root@localhost" like you do when you telnet to the box or does
it identify itself as "root@stripped" ?
