mysql_setpermission - interactively set permissions in grant tables
is a Perl script that was originally written and
contributed by Luuk de Boer. It interactively sets permissions in the MariaDB
grant tables. mysql_setpermission
is written in Perl and requires that
the DBI and DBD::mysql Perl modules be installed.
shell> mysql_setpermission [options]
should be either --help
to display the help message, or
options that indicate how to connect to the MariaDB server. The account used
when you connect determines which permissions you have when attempting to
modify existing permissions in the grant tables.
also reads options from the [client] and [perl]
groups in the .my.cnf file in your home directory, if the file exists.
supports the following options:
Display a help message and exit.
Connect to the MariaDB server on the given host.
The password to use when connecting to the server. Note that the password value
is not optional for this option, unlike for other MariaDB programs.
Specifying a password on the command line should be considered insecure. You can
use an option file to avoid giving the password on the command line.
The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.
For connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use.
The MariaDB user name to use when connecting to the server.
