adding users to mySQL


Hi

I'm very much a beginner but keen to learn as much as I can about running a Linux based web server...so much so I'm renting my own VPS and trying to teach myself.

I now have mySQL running successfully and I'm trying to configure it in respect of users and databases...essentially populating the database called "mysql".

I came across this helpful article.

http://www.linuxhelp.net/guides/mysql/

However my question is ...is it really necessary to do all the mysqladmin commands......it just that other articles I've seen suggest don't mention it.

Basically I just wanted to be sure either way first in case I messed anything up.

Thanks very much.

The definitive guide to whether or not the mysqladmin commands are really necessary would be the MySQL Reference Manual (http://dev.mysql.com/doc/), section 5.5 MySQL User Account Management.
