ok, i just created an app and db on my local system.  we are now using linux os.  I have moved the code to the server, created the db and now I need to add the tables and data which are all located in an .sql files. after creating the db i did this:

grant all privileges on compx to compx identified by 'compx20';

  grant all privileges on compx to compx@localhost identified by 'compx20';

  update mysql.user set password=OLD_PASSWORD('compx20') where user='compx ';

  flush privileges;

i load my .sql file and get 1044-access denied for user 'compx@% to database mysql.  I am using mysql qui (navicat) and i know locally, i had to go to manage users and select everything, edit, create, etc and save it.  I thought all the granting above would take care of that.  Now I am wondering if I have to somehow grant edit, create, delete, etc for the db that is on the linux server.  

any help would be appreciated.
