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.
