How can I get SUPER privileges on the MySQL database created for WordPress?

I need to create a trigger on the Wordpress database that requires the SUPER privilege. The user created by webfaction does not have that. How do I get it?

Thanks!

You cannot have superuser privileges on our shared MySQL service. If you require superuser privileges, then you'll need to build your own MySQL from source and run that as a custom application to manage your databases outside of our control panel.
