How to assign a user to a database through MySQL command line in Linux

Last updated on

Firstly, you must log in as root.

mysql -u root -p

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, always be sure to reload all the privileges.
