Hi,
My web developer needs to access a specific database, and he wants to be able to use phpmyadmin for that purpose. I created a user for him which has all the priviledges for that specific database. However I do not want him to know my root password. Is there any way he can access phpmyadmin and only work within its priviledges?

Cheers!

Yes, if you create a new user you can give him ALL privillages on a specific database ONLY and he can connect only to that database not others. You should of course test the new user before handing it to him. Write a connection script using his username/password combination and connect him to his database. Make sure that works, then try connecting him to any other database and make sure you get permission denied error.

There was something wrong going over there, however, I deleted the user and created a new one just the way you told me and that seems to work.
