Don't I know it. I have to set all my mysql databases up with
localhost.* and hubble.* (my server name) in order to get any login to
work. Makes no sense at all. Weird

I know people complain about Firebird's 'strange' centralised user database, and there are times when a user list per database may seem better, but most of the time the applications ARE better supported by user tables in the target database, and access to the database simply controlled by centralised rolls. Certainly I would not want to manage the hundreds of users on my systems as individual database users. I can then simply backup the target database as a cron job ...

Is there a similar backup process available for MySQL?
