How to Add a User in MySQL
How to Add a User in MySQL Database
To help keep your applications from accessing every database you will want to create separate users with various permissions to your databases.
How to Create/Add a User
For all of the following commands you will want to be logged into mysql with the root user.
Creating the user is pretty straight forward...
CREATE USER 'newuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'theirpassword';
Now you can also create it so that they access it from 127.0.0.1
CREATE USER 'newuser'@'127.0.0.1' IDENTIFIED BY 'theirpassword';
GRANT permissions to your New User
Give them the entire farm
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'newuser'@'localhost';
You will want to use the same TO that you used above
Then activate the new privileges
Now I like to let them only have specific actions on the farm
GRANT INSERT,SELECT,UPDATE on database . * to 'newuser'@'localhost'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
Basic Syntax for GRANT
GRANT [type of permission] ON [database name].[table name] TO ‘[username]’@'localhost’;
Each time you update or change a permission be sure to use the Flush Privileges command
