adding users to mySQL


I'm very much a beginner but keen to learn as much as I can about running a Linux based web 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.

However my question is it really necessary to do all the mysqladmin 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 (, section 5.5 MySQL User Account Management.
