Grant Privileges

I have recently set up mySQL on a Mandrake release of Linux (Version 7 of
Mandrake, I believe), using the binary 4.0.13 standard release.

The set up and start up all were normal, as far as I could tell, with no
warnings or error messages.

In nearly all respects, the database appears to be running as expected. I
have the book "PHP and mySQL Web Development" by Luke Welling and Laura
Thomson, and have been working through the examples there.

The question I have is about the GRANT command, and the apparent results
there. I don't know if my problem is one of understanding what the results
should be, or if I have another problem.

I am attempting to set up an administrative user, that has the same
privileges as root. I have been able to set up a user that appears to have
all privileges, with the exception of GRANT privileges to other users. This
user can create new database tables, insert records, modify them, delete
them and so on.

But, when this user tries to GRANT privileges on any database, even ones it
has created, an 'access denied' error is generated. I have pasted a session
below. (I hope that wrapping does not make this difficult to read.)

mysql> show grants for chc;
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------+
| Grants for chc@%
|
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------+
| GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, CREATE, DROP, REFERENCES, INDEX,
ALTER, CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES, LOCK TABLES ON *.* TO 'chc|
| GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `mysql`.`aec200 3` TO 'chc'@'%' WITH GRANT OPTION
|
| GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `mysql`.`mysql` TO 'chc'@'%' WITH GRANT OPTION
|
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------+
3 rows in set (0.01 sec)

mysql> GRANT ALL
-> ON *.*
-> TO fred IDENTIFIED BY 'classy'
-> WITH GRANT OPTION;
ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'chc@localhost' (Using password: YES)
mysql>

Now, if I change this GRANT command as follows:

mysql> GRANT ALL
-> ON aec2003
-> TO fred IDENTIFIED BY 'classy'
-> WITH GRANT OPTION;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Then, as shown in the results, the query appears to function as desired.

However, when I then attempt to log in as fred, again access is denied:

[chc@secure chc]$
[chc@secure chc]$ mysql -u fred -p
Enter password: ******
ERROR 1045: Access denied for user: 'fred@localhost ' (Using password: YES)
[chc@secure chc]$

even though when we check the GRANT table, the results are:

mysql> show grants for fred;
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-+
| Grants for fred@%
|
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-+
| GRANT USAGE ON *.* TO 'fred'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY PASSWORD '677e059523c257 eb'
|
| GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `mysql`.`aec200 3` TO 'fred'@'%' WITH GRANT OPTION
|
+---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)

I am obviously missing some part of the process, but I am not sure what it
is. Can you explain the piece I am missing? I would appreciate it very much.
Thanks.

Charles Cantrell
