Why the 'with grant option' in MySQL during install?

Question asked by tvaughan77 on Feb 9, 2009
Hi,

Just curious – why do the install instructions recommend creating the alfresco user "with grant option" when setting up MySQL?

Does alfresco create and grant other users access within MySQL during runtime?

To jog your memory, here's the steps in the install process I'm curious about:

create database alfresco;

grant all on alfresco.* to 'alfresco'@'localhost' identified by 'alfresco' with grant option;

grant all on alfresco.* to 'alfresco'@'localhost.localdomain' identified by 'alfresco' with grant option;

Thanks in advance,
Tom
