  • MaNGOS Default Accounts


    Hi there,

    I am writing this little article about default accounts in MaNGOS and how to deal with them.

    > WHAT ARE DEFAULT ACCOUNTS ?

    Default accounts are accounts created in the account table of the auth DB when you have a fresh install :

    After a fresh install you will get those 4 default accounts that allow you to connect directly to your realm in order to make quick tests.

     


    > HOW CAN YOU USE THEM ?

    As you can see you have only encrypted password in DB but the scheme is easy : all passwords are equal to the account name.

    USERNAME PASSWORD 
    ADMINISTRATOR ADMINISTRATOR
    GAMEMASTER GAMEMASTER
    MODERATOR MODERATOR
    PLAYER PLAYER

    Note : They are not case sensitive when you type them in the game client.

     


    > PLEASE... DELETE THESE ACCOUNTS IF THEY ARE NOT NEEDED AFTER YOUR FIRST TESTS !

    We recommend that you get rid of these accounts and create your own ones, for obvious security reasons :

    DELETE FROM `account` WHERE `username` IN ('ADMINISTRATOR', 'GAMEMASTER', 'MODERATOR', 'PLAYER');

    If you let them as it is and run a live server... anyone would be able to connect as a GM if you do not change the default passwords.
