Character length restrictions

[1] [2]

  • 64 characters for database name
  • 16 characters for user name
  •  ? characters for password length
    • Seems to be dependent on the version


Using comments

These are all valid comment styles.

Create a database

CREATE DATABASE my_test_db CHARACTER SET utf8;


Create a user for that database with full privileges to it

CREATE USER 'my_test_db_usr'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'INITIAL_PASSWORD';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON my_test_db.* TO 'my_test_db_usr'@'localhost';


Reset password for user account

SET PASSWORD for 'my_test_db_usr'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('REAL_PASSWORD_HERE');


Import or run SQL statements from file

source my-sql-file.sql;


Insert a new row

[4]

  INSERT INTO table_name (
      `field_name1`, 
      `field_name2`, 
      `field_name3`
  )
  VALUES (
      'Value1', 
      'Value2', 
      'Value3'
  );


Update field

[4]

UPDATE table_name SET table_field = 'Value' WHERE id = '1';


Delete row

DELETE FROM virtual_domains WHERE id = '1' OR id = '7';


Delete user account

DROP USER 'my_test_db_usr'@'localhost';


Delete database

DROP DATABASE 'my_test_db';


Resetting the root user account

[5] [6]

More Secure

1 nano /home/me/FILE
2 # Add SQL statement from section below
3 # Save & quit nano
4 sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
5 mysqld_safe --init-file=/home/me/FILE &
6 rm /home/me/FILE
7 sudo /etc/init.d/mysql restart

Less secure

1 sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
2 sudo mysqld --skip-grant-tables &
3 mysql -u root mysql
4 UPDATE user SET Password=PASSWORD('YOURNEWPASSWORD') WHERE User='root'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES; exit;


Viewing privileges granted to a user

[7] [8]

  • select * from mysql.user;
    
    • Parse results by eye (not pretty)
  • SHOW GRANTS FOR username@ipaddress;
    
  • SHOW GRANTS;
    
    • For current user


Show the character set for a database

[9]

SHOW CREATE DATABASE database_name;


Show the database engine type

[10]

USE DATABASE database_name;
SHOW CREATE TABLE table_name;
