18.18 MySQL Create a New User
The mysql-navigator can be used to create a new user.
Start it and open a connection to the localhost server with user root
and database mysql. Under the MySQL menu select User. Choose the
action to permform, prvoide the relevant information then Fire. Then
under the MySQL menu select Privilege to grant database access. Note
that you may still need
mysqladmin -u root -p reload?
Alternatively, you can do it as follows. The first insert adds this user’s password to the users table. The second then gives this user access to a particular database.
$ mysql -u root -pYYYYY mysql mysql> insert into user (host, user, password, select_priv) -> values ('localhost', 'kayon', password('XXXXXX'), 'Y'); Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec) mysql> insert into db (host, db, user, select_priv) -> values ('localhost', 'customers', 'kayon', 'Y'); Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec) mysql> exit alpine$ mysqladmin -u root -pYYYYY reload
Then this user can access the specified data base to perform SELECT queries:
$ mysql -u kayon -pXXXXXX customers
