How can I verify that the MySQL user has LOCK TABLES permission?  Is there a query I can run in phpMyAdmin?

If I don't have the permission, how can I give that permission to the user?

Use SHOW GRANTS FOR command.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/show-grants.html

Eg: SHOW GRANTS FOR 'root'@'localhost'

And yes, you can run it in phpMyAdmin.

Your account must have GRANT permission to grant permission to user

Another way is to show data stored in mysql db

http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mysql/article.php/10897_3311731_1/An-introduction-to-MySQL-permissions.htm

You can type this SQL to phpMyAdmin query window to see the result:

SELECT host, user, lock_tables_priv FROM mysql.user WHERE user = 'user_name_you_want_to_see'


If value in lock_tables_priv is Y then corresponding user has LOCK TABLES permission.

You can use GRANT command to grant permission to user http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/grant.html

@greddin: in phpMyAdmin, if you can see mysql in DB list (in Database combo box on left frame) then follow these steps to get your info:
1. choose "mysql" from DB list
2. click on table "user"
3. click on "Browse" tab
4. on listed record list, look for value of column "Lock_tables_priv" of corresponding user.
5. "Y" means that user has LOCK TABLES permission.
