4.6.13 mysql_setpermission — Interactively Set Permissions in Grant Tables

mysql_setpermission is a Perl script that was originally written and contributed by Luuk de Boer. It interactively sets permissions in the MySQL grant tables. mysql_setpermission is written in Perl and requires that the DBI and DBD::mysql Perl modules be installed (see Section 2.12, “Perl Installation Notes”).

Invoke mysql_setpermission like this:

shell> mysql_setpermission [options]

options should be either --help to display the help message, or options that indicate how to connect to the MySQL server. The account used when you connect determines which permissions you have when attempting to modify existing permissions in the grant tables.

mysql_setpermissions also reads options from the [client] and [perl] groups in the .my.cnf file in your home directory, if the file exists.

mysql_setpermission supports the following options:
