MYSQLACCESS(1)               MySQL Database System              MYSQLACCESS(1)




NAME

       mysqlaccess - client for checking access privileges


SYNOPSIS

       mysqlaccess [host_name [user_name [db_name]]] [options]


DESCRIPTION

       mysqlaccess is a diagnostic tool that Yves Carlier has provided for the
       MySQL distribution. It checks the access privileges for a hostname,
       username, and database combination. Note that mysqlaccess checks access
       using only the user, db, and host tables. It does not check table,
       column, or routine privileges specified in the tables_priv,
       columns_priv, or procs_priv tables.

       Invoke mysqlaccess like this:

       shell> mysqlaccess [host_name [user_name [db_name]]] [options]

       mysqlaccess understands the following options:

       ·  --help, -?

          Display a help message and exit.

       ·  --brief, -b

          Generate reports in single-line tabular format.

       ·  --commit

          Copy the new access privileges from the temporary tables to the
          original grant tables. The grant tables must be flushed for the new
          privileges to take effect. (For example, execute a mysqladmin reload
          command.)

       ·  --copy

          Reload the temporary grant tables from original ones.

       ·  --db=db_name, -d db_name

          Specify the database name.

       ·  --debug=N

          Specify the debug level.  N can be an integer from 0 to 3.

       ·  --host=host_name, -h host_name

          The hostname to use in the access privileges.

       ·  --howto

          Display some examples that show how to use mysqlaccess.

       ·  --old_server

          Assume that the server is an old MySQL server (before MySQL 3.21)
          that does not yet know how to handle full WHERE clauses.

       ·  --password[=password], -p[password]

          The password to use when connecting to the server. If you omit the
          password value following the --password or -p option on the command
          line, you are prompted for one.

       ·  --plan

          Display suggestions and ideas for future releases.

       ·  --preview

          Show the privilege differences after making changes to the temporary
          grant tables.

       ·  --relnotes

          Display the release notes.

       ·  --rhost=host_name, -H host_name

          Connect to the MySQL server on the given host.

       ·  --rollback

          Undo the most recent changes to the temporary grant tables.

       ·  --spassword[=password], -P[password]

          The password to use when connecting to the server as the superuser.
          If you omit the password value following the --password or -p option
          on the command line, you are prompted for one.

       ·  --superuser=user_name, -U user_name

          Specify the username for connecting as the superuser.

       ·  --table, -t

          Generate reports in table format.

       ·  --user=user_name, -u user_name

          The hostname to use in the access privileges.

       ·  --version, -v

          Display version information and exit.

       If your MySQL distribution is installed in some non-standard location,
       you must change the location where mysqlaccess expects to find the
       mysql client. Edit the mysqlaccess script at approximately line 18.
       Search for a line that looks like this:

       $MYSQL     = ’/usr/local/bin/mysql’;    # path to mysql executable

       Change the path to reflect the location where mysql actually is stored
       on your system. If you do not do this, a Broken pipe error will occur
       when you run mysqlaccess.
