Ubuntu: How to create a new user in MySQL

Last updated on

Firstly, you must log in as root.

mysql -u root -p

Now you can create a new user. Replace your_username and password with your own.

CREATE USER 'your_username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

Now you can grant privileges. Replace your_dbname, your_username and your_password with your own details.

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON your_dbname.* To 'your_username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'your_password';

Once you have finalised the permissions that you want to set up for your new users, always be sure to reload all the privileges.

FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
