I generally only need to do this once for each project, which means I don’t do it often enough to remember. Log in to the MySQL server as root, then: create database newdb; grant all on newdb.* to ‘newuser’@’localhost’ identified by ‘newuser’; set password for ‘newuser’@’localhost’ = password(‘newpass’); And you’re ready to go! Replace newdb, newuser and newpass with whatever you like.
Welcome to my new site. I plan to post things here about the things that I’m doing, along with tips for other web developers. I’m not worried about sharing my knowledge – it’s all available on the internet anyway. Why not have it all in one place? It’ll be like my own personal notebook – one that everyone can take advantage of. I feel all warm and fuzzy.
