I'm a new boy to Linux/Ubuntu and I've got a problem. I've setup a UBUNTU Workstation 8.04.2. (the reason for Workstation is the GUI). Installed all the updates.
Installed apache 2
I've got a backup of a database I've restored to this machine. I've successfully transfered the program and got it up and running.
I can see it from any pc using a web browser using its internal ip address http://192.168.220.30/DBase/people
So now I want to access it via ODBC so that I can generate reports. I've got the correct ODBC driver installed on the windows PCs (It works fine accessing another UBUNTU server's DBase).
For the life of me I can't figure out how I tell the server to permit access??!!! I've surched everywhere. The MySQL site suggests:
$ CREATE USER (blah blah blah) in the /etc/mysql subdirectory
I've tried this but it doesn't recognise the "CREATE" command. Lord knows why.
I've also tried:
$ SHOW GRANTS for admin@localhost (this I believe should be a default) and the UBUNTU says it doesn't recognise the"SHOW" command and that I should
$ apt-get install nmh
Which I did do - with no success.
As you can see - I don't know what I'm doing. I'm trying hard but ignorance is definitely a no no with this OS!!! Anyone got any suggestions!!!
