Community site: login faq

There may be a simple answer to this that I just haven't found yet. I set up a PostgreSQL database in the webfaction control panel and have create a second user and assigned it to that database. It seems, though, that I can only give that second use either "Full Permissions" or "Owner" privileges.

Is there a way to assign a user only Read-Only rights for a PostgreSQL DB?

If you want granular control of permissions you must use a Private Postrgres type app. The managed instance does not have this level of control.
