I have a VBA frontend system which connects to a mysql backend.

It authenticates on manually created mysql users which are setup to allow access to further databases once authenticated.

I need to investigate offering users to ability to change their own mysql password without having an admin having to do it at command line level.

Obviously im consious of security and need to get some ideas on how to acheive this.
