It would be something like this :

GRANT SELECT, INSERT, DELETE ON database TO username@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

To see a list of the privileges that have been granted to a specific user:

select * from mysql.user where User='username';


CREATE USER 'newuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'newuser'@'localhost';

You can use GRANT syntax to give user permission:

For example if you would like to give SELECT permission on TEST database for myUser then:

GRANT SELECT ON Test. TO 'myUser'@'%';*
