MySQL username

hi, can i add the same username to two different databases? i created a new database but when i try to add a new user (the same user that is added to the other database) it says that name is already taken. i don’t have to create a new user to go with this database do i? that would be dumb. thanks for your help.

yes you do – and yes it is dumb

It is indeed dumb, and it’s also something we hope to address the next time we re-write the MySQL panel code. :>
