This tutorial is short and to the point. I don’t use MySQL a lot but when I do I always forget the exact syntax to create a database and grant permissions to a username.
First we need to login at MySQL:
# mysql -u root -p Enter password:
We can create a database like this:
create database MYDATABASE;
Next we will create a username and ensure it is allowed to connect to MySQL:
mysql> grant usage on *.* to MYUSER@localhost identified by 'MYPASSWORD'; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
The final step is to allow the user all permissions for the database we just created:
mysql> grant all privileges on MYDATABASE.* to MYUSER@localhost ; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
In case you want to delete a database or username, this is how to do it:
mysql> drop database MYDATABASE ; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
This will remove the database and here’s how to delete the user:
mysql> drop user MYUSER@localhost ; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
