comment Why is it bad to have a weak mysql user password?
@Peter As an aside, you probably shouldn't be allowing your mysql and www-data users to login interactively.

comment Why is it bad to have a weak mysql user password?
@Peter Yes, my argument is still valid, as my whole argument is "just because your password might be compromised doesn't mean you shouldn't use a password". You've highlighted one specific case where the password is compromised. This isn't cause to give up on password-protecting your database, as there are countless other cases in which a strong password would protect it.

Voted to move to Server Fault; This has a lot more to do with system administration than programming.
