I have installed mysql on fedora. Fedora has 3 users: 1. Admin 2. paritosh 3. atul

Only "paritosh" should be able to access the mysql. He will have complete access to mysql - root.

Please assist.

I think what you need to do is only give the root password for your MySQL installation to the user called 'paritosh'.

No I dont want that... I want only paritosh should be able to login as root , nobody else should be able to login. Even if other users have password of root, they shouldn't be able to login.

If they don't have the root password, they can't log in as root. Only people who have the root password can log in as the root user.

You can grant permissions to other users to log in and have administration privileges, but if you want them to have access to the root login for your MySQL server, then you have to give them the root password.
