Accessing a database without a password

Adminer 4.6.3 and newer does not support accessing a database without a password. The reason is that a forgotten Adminer uploaded on a place accessible by an attacker could have been used to access a database. There are these options:

  1. Set up the database server to require a password. This is possible with all databases except SQLite and SimpleDB.
  2. Use the login-password-less plugin to set up a password required by Adminer but not passed to the database (example).
  3. Use the login-ip plugin to check the IP address and allow an empty password.
  4. Implement the login method to add your custom authentication.
