MySQL installation

create database wikidb; grant index, create, select, insert, update, delete, alter, lock tables on wikidb.* to 'wikiuser'@'localhost' identified by 'password';

If your database is not running on the same server as your web server, you need to give the appropriate web server hostname -- mediawiki.example.com in my example -- as follows:

grant index, create, select, insert, update, delete, alter, lock tables on wikidb.* to 'wikiuser'@'mediawiki.example.com' identified by 'password';
