Greetings all,

Just installed MySQL 4 and I altered the permissions for the root user by changing the name of root to a different username and setting a password -- all the usual security stuff. However, I have noticed that there are two "superuser" accounts that are granted all privilages. Both have the same user name and both have the same password. The only difference is one is for "localhost" and one is for "gwc." I know what localhost is, but was is the "gwc" Host and why would I need this user?
