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';
  • Yes it works, thank you so much. Let me try another one also. Commented Jan 8, 2014 at 8:32

You can use GRANT syntax to give user permission: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/grant.html

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

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