I am hosting my website on Vario. They gave me initially a username/password. This username/password has all privilages. I don't have access to mysql main database, all I can use is the database that they have created for me. Is it possible for mre to introduce more users with less privilages, or does Vario have to do it themselves?

Yes, you should be able to add new users... and they can be given all your levels of access, or lesser ones.

Code: Select all

GRANT all privileges on *.* to new_user identified by "password";

ok, but how do I create new users in the first place? If I don't have access to mysql.user then I don't see a way of inserting new records into this user table.
