Webmin: creation of a mysql-db with user, user permission - which is the correct sequence?

Recommended Posts

Using Webmin to Manage MySQL to manage the MySQL server installed on the Linux server. At the moment i have serious issues in installaing a web application installation - like Wordpress: i get back errors in establishing a db. 

i follow the sequence of steps: 
create user: 

create a MySQL database,

db-permission: for the given db: Once we have created a new MySQL database, we must now assign permissions to this database. Now that we have sucessfully created a new database, a new user, and set up a database permissions scheme for that database, our web application installation should be seamless. 

by the way; this guy here has a interesting setup: 

Virtualmin/webmin mysql user-database permissions 

note: the sequence is very interesting

first he creates a new user ( to which he gives no permissons..) THAT is very very interesting... 

the permission are given in the step: "db-permission" - not (!!!) in the creation of users. 

what do you say!?

hello dear all - found out more infos - 


i have seen a how-to: that guides through the process of setting up the db and the user: 

Create and Manage MySQL Users in Webmin



To begin managing MySQL in webmin, do the following:

1) Login to webmin and find the section called “Servers”
2) Click “MySQL Database Server”
3) Select “User Permissions”

To create a new user:

1) Click “Create new user” under the table listing current users
2) Enter a user name and password
3) Select permissions (these are global privileges – you can set privileges for individual databases in another section
4) Click “Create”

To change permissions for specific databases, follow these steps:

1) From the MySQL Database Server page, click “Database Permissions”
2) Click the name of the database you want to manage
3) For “Username” toggle the box to the right of the anonymous box and enter the user you want to have permissions for this database
4) Select the permissions you want to grant. To select multiple permissions, hold the Control key and click them
5) Click “Save”.

a. localhost or 
b. any host
