  1. Hi, I have problem in creating User with full privileges in PHPMyAdmin

    How can I give privileges to an existing user for a certain database Or new one?

    When I try to create a new user in a newly created database, It gives following error

    #1044 – Access denied for user ‘azure’@’localhost’ to database ‘sdt678u’

    I’m using following template

    Any help will be appreciated a lot.

    1. This is not supported since MySQL in-app or ClearDB MySQL solution dont give you complete access to the MySQL server. You get one database and one user with full privileges on that database

  2. I followed all the steps but I end up getting “Cannot connect: invalid settings” “phpMyAdmin tried to connect to the MySQL server, and the server rejected the connection. You should check the host, username and password in your configuration and make sure that they correspond to the information given by the administrator of the MySQL server.” What am I missing?
