i'm probably just being stupid, bt i'll throw this out hoping someone
can quickly show me the light.
i've just switched machines and installed a fresh copy of mysql
(3.22.32). i'm trying to move my databases over to a new machine.
the system, if it matters, is linuxppc.
i compiled and installed from the source, and the mysql client
program is running fine.
the thing is, i am only able to connect as root. i go and add users,
either by directly entering stuff into the user, db, and host tables,
or using the grant syntax, and none of my scripts are working b/c
they are being refused a connection. likewise, i can't use mysql
from the command line as any of these users. and es, i'm remembering
to use "flush privileges".
ok...so what silly thing am i overlooking?
