How do I add users or set passwords in my MySQL database?

If you already have a MySQL database, use the MySQL database and user management web application to:

  • add MySQL database users
  • remove MySQL database users
  • change access level (read-only or read-write)
  • change MySQL user passwords

Please note that MySQL usernames must correspond to existing UIC NetIDs. By default, each MySQL database also comes with two accounts:

  • databasename-ro (read-only)
  • databasename-rw (read-write)

Need help?
