HOW TO CREATE THE MySQL DATABASE

This step is only necessary if you don't already have a database set-up . In the following examples, 'username' is an example MySQL user which has the CREATE and GRANT privileges. Use the appropriate user name for your system.

First, you must create a new database for your site (here, 'databasename' is the name of the new database):

  mysqladmin -u username -p create databasename

MySQL will prompt for the 'username' database password and then create the initial database files. Next you must login and set the access database rights:

  mysql -u username -p

Again, you will be asked for the 'username' database password. At the MySQL prompt, enter following command:

  GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, INDEX, ALTER, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES
  ON databasename.*  TO 'username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

  where

 'databasename' is the name of your database
 'username@localhost' is the username of your MySQL account
 'password' is the password required for that username

Note: Unless your database user has all of the privileges listed above, you will not be able to run site on that database.

If successful, MySQL will reply with:

  Query OK, 0 rows affected

To activate the new permissions, enter the following command:

  FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
