That's an easy one. :)

Thanks in advance,

I believe you can just grant what ever permissions you like to a user without a user name, for example:

GRANT ALL ON *.* TO ''@'%';

Obviously you'll need an account to execute this command in the first place, and I'd really suggest limiting your databases and hosts.
