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
