Rati Dzidziguri: "I'm working on development of ERP and CRM software and during the process of creation of those products I have tried lots of solutions by the only solution I would call as an user friendly professional and with many other epithets is MySQL Maestro and all Maestro toolkits".
Renaud Lepage: "I was searching for a powerful server management as well as data management application, that could also have the ability to use stored procedures (MySQL5). I was using many separate apps. And then I stumbled upon this application. It just got better. With ease-of-use, powerful management, a very good level of customization, great MySQL server management and the very lushed graphical interface, MySQL Maestro is a product to consider seriously. I chose MySQL and this, to SQL Server 2000 and the MMC-integrated server management, for use in a programming course. I'm telling you, MySQL Maestro is a very powerful tool. Try it, you won't regret it".

The primary function of the MySQL privilege system is to authenticate a user who connects from a given host and to associate that user with privileges on a database such as SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE. Additional functionality includes the ability to have anonymous users and to grant privileges for MySQL-specific functions such as LOAD DATA INFILE and administrative operations.


The MySQL privilege system ensures that all users may perform only the operations allowed to them.



New users are created within Create User Wizard. In order to run the wizard you should open the server in Server Editor and the Users tab there and press Insert or select the Create New User item from the popup menu (Alternatively, use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).
