Subject: mysql connection test fails - insecure default
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 584b
When installing DBD::mysql through the CPAN shell, it never stops to ask me what username/password to use for the tests where it connects to mysql. It just uses user root and a blank password. So, I can either leave mysql insecure while installing DBD::mysql, or I can't use CPAN. I did notice in the documentation that you can specify the user and password by changing them in the test configuration - but you can't do that via CPAN. (At least not that I could find!) Would it be possible for the test script to prompt for a username and password before doing the connection tests?

You can set the DBI_USER and DBI_PASS environment variables to change what is used by the DBD::mysql test suite.
