I am logged into mysql…
mysql -u root -pmypass
And I have run the following command to remove the database user which worked succesfully
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES; DROP USER 'myuser_shop';
I can then add user successfully using the following command, again this works successfully
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES; CREATE USER 'myuser_shop' IDENTIFIED BY 'mypass';
The above command create a user with the host as a wildcard (%) The issue I am having is if I was to create a user with the host being say localhost or an external IP i get the following error:
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES; DROP USER 'myuser_shop'; mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES; CREATE USER 'myuser_shop'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'mypass'; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec) ERROR 1396 (HY000): Operation CREATE USER failed for 'myuser_shop'@'localhost'
Thanks in advance
This is a bug reported here – http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=28331
See if your user exists after you drop it.
Check following 2 tables if user is still there after DROP USER command:
mysql.user and mysql.db.
Delete user from both, then run FLUSH PRIVILEGES and then you can recreate the user.
drop user ‘[email protected]
i will suggest you to use phpmyadmin its very esey do do with that.
- open phpmyadmin
- go to admin section
- hit on add user account
- put user name and password
- set privileges
see in action on youtube [ click here ]
You have to manualy remove records with from mysql.tables_priv also.
