Trouble with multiple mysql databases

Hi All,
I'm having trouble accessing multiple databases using a single user.

Basically, I have 2 databases, db1 and db2 and 2 users, user1 and user2.
Originally these were setup so that user1 would only access db1 and user2
would only access db2. However, now I want user1 to access both db1 & db2.

I've used cPanel to declare user1 as a user of db2. However, whenever I try
to access db2 from user1, I get permission problems.

I've tried various combinations of mysql_db_select (), mysql_query("US E
db2Name", $db1link) or just referencing the appropriate table as
'db2Name.tableN ame' in my SELECT querys but everytime I get a permission
denied response.

Any ideas?. It looks like a cPanel problem to me as it appears that user1 is
simply not being granted access to db2 despite telling cPanel to do so.

Ta in advance,
Dave

You may get better answers on the MySQL newsgroup comp.databases. mysql as it
seems to be entirely about MySQL permissions - or some sort of cPanel support
site.

The brute-force method to fix it would probably be something like:

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON db2.* to 'user1@%';

... from a suitably privileged MySQL connection.

Dear group, we are dealing with some very specific problems with ODBC, where a connection from SQL-Server to Mysql works with ODBC-driver 3.51.10.00 and does NOT work with ODBC-driver 3.51.11.00. Maybe someone experiences similar problems or even has a solution ? Some feedback (to the group) would be highly appreciated.

I'm new to mysql and I was wondering if I could trouble some of you for help. I have a table in my database that may contain multiple versions of the same element as different rows. I wanted to use the following query to group the rows by element with "group by" and then use the "having" to get the most recent version of each element, which would then be returned in "select" but this doesn't seem to be working. Any elements with...

I have a Mysql database hosted on a remote server. Previously, I could always connect to those databases using the 3.51 ODBC connector and linking the tables in Access. The benefit of this is that I can view the data from my desktop, export it to spreadsheets if necessary and print labels. I guess because of a Mysql upgrade by my host, the 3.51 connector stopped working (the password hash problem), so I upgraded to the 5.* ODBC...
