MYSQL_SETPERMISSION(1)	     MySQL Database System	MYSQL_SETPERMISSION(1)

NAME
       mysql_setpermission - interactively set permissions in grant tables

SYNOPSIS
       mysql_setpermission [options]

DESCRIPTION
	   Note
	   This	utility	is deprecated in MySQL 5.6.17 and removed in MySQL 5.7

       mysql_setpermission is a	Perl script that was originally	written	and
       contributed by Luuk de Boer. It interactively sets permissions in the
       MySQL grant tables.  mysql_setpermission	is written in Perl and
       requires	that the DBI and DBD::mysql Perl modules be installed (see
       Section 2.13, "Perl Installation	Notes").

       Invoke mysql_setpermission like this:

	   shell> mysql_setpermission [options]

       options should be either	--help to display the help message, or options
       that indicate how to connect to the MySQL server. The account used when
       you connect determines which permissions	you have when attempting to
       modify existing permissions in the grant	tables.

       mysql_setpermissions also reads options from the	[client] and [perl]
       groups in the .my.cnf file in your home directory, if the file exists.

       mysql_setpermission supports the	following options:

       o   --help

	   Display a help message and exit.

       o   --host=host_name

	   Connect to the MySQL	server on the given host.

       o   --password=password

	   The password	to use when connecting to the server. The password
	   value is not	optional for this option, unlike for other MySQL
	   programs.

	   Specifying a	password on the	command	line should be considered
	   insecure. To	avoid giving the password on the command line, use an
	   option file.	See Section 6.1.2.1, "End-User Guidelines for Password
	   Security".

       o   --port=port_num

	   The TCP/IP port number to use for the connection.

       o   --socket=path

	   For connections to localhost, the Unix socket file to use.

       o   --user=user_name

	   The MySQL user name to use when connecting to the server.
