OK - this is one of those tech questions that simply pisses me off that I even have to ask it. I am logged into mysql. I create a database. Then I try to grant all permissions on that database to another user and I receive the message that I (the user that just created the database) is denied access to the database.

What am I doing wrong?

    never mind - i created that database as root instead. There must be some sort of wacky permissions thing where my user can create a database but then root has to allow it access to it.
