Problems with Install
Authored by: jtrascap on May 28, '01 11:38:31AM

This is beginning to drive me nuts, mostly because I don't know mysql, so
I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

The problem seems to be that my install of mysql only works with the mysql account.
I can't do a "mysqladmin" or even "mysql" under any other account, even root. This
seems to be screwing up getting phpMyAdmin to work - even with the correct
account in the config, it won't connect.

Is there a way to change the accessibility of mysql (so it's usable under a root account,
for example) without having to reinstall mysql?

(PS: Any recommendations for books on this greatly appreciated. In fact, if you can help
me sort this out, I'll get you drunk next time you're in Amsterdam! How's that for a bribe?!)

in order to give other access to tables log in where you do have access.
type in the following lines

Grant all on tablename.* to "username"@localhost identified by 'password' with grant option;

flush privileges

You should now be able to do anything to the table you specified using the username and password you specified.

As for books I have the orielly mysql/msql book which is really good. Also the online manual is pretty extensive and helpful.
