mySQL users

You need to create a mySQL user before that user is able to use the database.

This does not automatically allow the user to use a database – you need to grant that user permissions to the specific database first. Refer to Grant a user’s permissions to a mySQL database for more information.

To create a mySQL user:

  1. Click on the MySQL Databases link in the Advanced Menu area.

  2. Enter the user’s name in the Username field and the user’s password in the Password field.

  3. Click on the Add User button button.

Creating a mySQL user

Removing a user deletes that user – it removes all database permissions that the user has and does not allow that user access to any mySQL databases.

To remove a user:

  1. Click on the MySQL Databases link in the Advanced Menu area.

  2. Click on the Delete button next to the specific user in the Users area.
