  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems.https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/7073/RIPE Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...

MySQL user management

MySQL user management


Create a new user with password and set all permissions
CREATE USER 'newuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO 'newuser'@'localhost';

FLUSH PRIVILEGES;



How To Grant Different User Permissions


Here is a short list of other common possible permissions that users can enjoy.
  • ALL PRIVILEGES- as we saw previously, this would allow a MySQL user all access to a designated database (or if no database is selected, across the system)
  • CREATE- allows them to create new tables or databases
  • DROP- allows them to them to delete tables or databases
  • DELETE- allows them to delete rows from tables
  • INSERT- allows them to insert rows into tables
  • SELECT- allows them to use the Select command to read through databases
  • UPDATE- allow them to update table rows
  • GRANT OPTION- allows them to grant or remove other users' privileges

To provide a specific user with a permission, you can use this framework:
 GRANT [type of permission] ON [database name].[table name] TO ‘[username]’@'localhost’;


If you want to give them access to any database or to any table, make sure to put an asterisk (*) in the place of the database name or table name.
Each time you update or change a permission be sure to use the Flush Privileges command.
If you need to revoke a permission, the structure is almost identical to granting it:
 REVOKE [type of permission] ON [database name].[table name] FROM ‘[username]’@‘localhost’;


Just as you can delete databases with DROP, you can use DROP to delete a user altogether:
 DROP USER ‘demo’@‘localhost’;


To test out your new user, log out by typing
 quit 


and log back in with this command in terminal:
mysql -u [username]-p

IF YOU SHOULD HAVE STILL PROBLEMS WITH PERMISSIONS: dpkg-reconfigure mysql-server
