Hi,

I have created a database in mysql with user id "root" and pwd "xxx".

Now when the user from different machine access the database it gives error say
"root@machinename" does not exists.

every time i need to create user "root@machinename" and grant privileges to that then only db accessed.

why the machine name is appended with db user is mysql?

When creating users, you need to grant them access:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/adding-users.html

E.g.
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'monty'@'localhost'

Open in new window


You can use the wildcare '%' for all hosts.

E.g.
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'monty'@'%'

From the link I posted above

mysql> CREATE USER 'monty'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'some_pass';
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'monty'@'%'
    ->     WITH GRANT OPTION;

Open in new window



The 'monty'@'%' account uses the '%' wildcard for the host part, so it can be used to connect from any host.
