Creating a MySQL user
Posted by Roy Petersen on Feb-15-2007 12:16 PM

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 permission to the specific database first. Refer to the KB section on "creating a database" for more information.

To create a MySQL user:

  1. Click on the MySQL databases button on the home page.

  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.
