I want separate users with different permissions to access a database. I can't seem to find a method to add a user to the database through the control panel, nor does create user as an SQL command work.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

This is not functionality the shared MySQL or Postgres Database servers can perform. You would have to build your own database server from source within your home directory to have this functionality.

If you're looking for this kind of security configuration via the phpmyadmin interface:

  1. User A has full access to database A and constrained access to database B.
  2. User B has constrained access to database A and full access to databases B and C.

See the first answer here.
