I can't find the Privileges tab in phpMyAdmin in my WebFaction account. Can I not create multiple users for a database? I want to create one user for reading and one for writing to minimize the chance that a mistake on my part will result in data loss.

At this time, you cannot create multiple users for your MySQL databases on our system. Each database has a single user created for it, and only that user can access the database.

If you need more control over your MySQL databases and users, then you can build your own MySQL from source and run it as a custom application to manage your databases manually. Some instructions are available here: Compiling a private MySQL installation in your home directory

Hope that helps!
