    Quick Question on mysql security

    Just curious to know how secure the mysql databases are on this server ?

    I can connect to mysql and then a show_databases shows all databases on the system. Thugh I haven't tried to access any of them, still want to know if it'sopen ot any one on the server or only to the owner of the database ?

    That's the result of how Cpanel integrates with MySQL. All the databases on the machine may be listed, but can't be accessed without the respective usernames and passwords.
