Adding users to access database

3 posts in this topic

Trying to add another admin so that they can access DB with a seperate username/password.  I believe this is done in the extdb-conf.ini. but not exactly sure what needs to happen here.  Anyone else solve this?

 

[exile]
Type = MySQL
Name = exile
Username = bumblebee
Password = abc123
IP = 127.0.0.1
Port = 3306
minSessions = 2
idleTime = 60
; Really should only use this if MySQL server is external. Also only for MySQL
compress = false
; Recommend you turn this on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-command-options.html#option_mysql_secure-auth
Secure Auth = true

 

Can i simply copy paste this section with new username and password?

No, these are your credentials to log in to the DB. You need to make another account INSIDE your MYSQL. Then give him that username & pw and you are good to go. You don't need to edit the extdb-conf.ini, since thats where you PROVIDE a username and PW for Exile to write it's data in your database.
