Description Mike Lococo 2006-09-23 23:48:45 UTC
Description of problem:

/usr/share/doc/wordpress-2.0.4/README.fedora specifies that the correct command
to create a mysql user for wordpress is:

grant all privileges on wordpress.* to wordpress identified by 'wordpress';

When I do this on an up to date FC5 system, wordpress is unable to access the
database.  Additionally I am unable to log into mysql with "mysql -u wordpress
-p", instead getting an access denied error.  I believe the correct mysql
command to issue is:

grant all privileges on wordpress.* to wordpress@localhost identified by
'wordpress';

Except for this error, the install docs are clear and readable regarding the
installation procedure.  Thanks for creating them.

Doc updated, new packages built and waiting sync now.  Sorry for the delay.

Comment 2 Mike Lococo 2007-01-15 04:07:39 UTC
This bug still exists in 2.0.5-1 on FC6.  Perhaps it regressed by accident at
some point?

Comment 3 John Berninger 2007-01-22 23:20:17 UTC
Taken from the /usr/share/doc/wordpress-2.0.5/README.fedora file on a
just-installed wordpress package in FC6:

Under certain curcumstances, you may need to run variations of the "grant"
command:
mysql> grant all privileges on wordpress.* to wordpress@localhost identified by 
'wordpress';
   OR
mysql> grant all privileges on wordpress.* to wordpress@'%' identified by 'wordp
ress';
