Subject:Re: Disable DB without deleting data
View as plain text  
the permissions are in the "mysql" database
so there are two possibilites

* mysql is not interested and do not touch them at all
  means they are still for the old names and work after
  rename beack as before

* mysql does magic and update the permission-tables

i bet case one will happen
and this is what you want

after "rename" this way there is no access except with root-permissions
after rename back all is as before

however, you can export permissions easily with phpMyAdmin
as normal sql-statements
