mysqlaccess


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 host name,
       user name, and database combination.  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]

       When mysqlaccess runs, it loads and executes the contents of its
       configuration file, mysqlaccess.conf.  mysqlaccess looks for the
       configuration file in these locations, in order:

       o   The directory named by the SYSCONFDIR option to CMake when MySQL
           was built. By default, this is the etc directory located under the
           compiled-in installation directory.

       o   The /etc directory.

       mysqlaccess supports the options shown in the following table.

       o   --help, -?

           Display a help message and exit.

       o   --brief, -b

           Generate reports in single-line tabular format.

       o   --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.)

       o   --copy

           Reload the temporary grant tables from original ones.

       o   --db=db_name, -d db_name

           Specify the database name.

       o   --debug=N

           Specify the debug level.  N can be an integer from 0 to 3.
           that does not yet know how to handle full WHERE clauses.

       o   --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, mysqlaccess prompts for one.

           Specifying a password on the command line should be considered
           insecure. See Section 6.1.2.1, "End-User Guidelines for Password
           Security".

       o   --plan

           Display suggestions and ideas for future releases.

       o   --preview

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

       o   --relnotes

           Display the release notes.

       o   --rhost=host_name, -H host_name

           Connect to the MySQL server on the given host.

       o   --rollback

           Undo the most recent changes to the temporary grant tables.

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

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

           Specifying a password on the command line should be considered
           insecure. See Section 6.1.2.1, "End-User Guidelines for Password
           Security".

       o   --superuser=user_name, -U user_name

           Specify the user name for connecting as the superuser.

       o   --table, -t

           Generate reports in table format.

       o   --user=user_name, -u user_name

           The user name to use in the access privileges.

       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.
