Linux MySQL Noob
Posted on 2008-06-17
Hello, I've got a Linux server running MySQL server. It is up and running great, currently being used by one web app on this server and I don't want to break it.
What I would like to do, is create a new SQL database and a new username and password that a new web application (that I'm going to install on this server) can use to access the new database.
Can you tell me the commands that I need (there is no GUI on this server) to add a SQL database and a set of credentials to access the database with. AND/OR a good web site or two that I can read to learn more about SQL.
To let you know more about the SQL that I'm running, here are the results of a 'yum list | grep -i sql'
