MYSQL_FIX_PRIVILE(1)		      MySQL Database System		     MYSQL_FIX_PRIVILE(1)

NAME
       mysql_fix_privilege_tables - upgrade MySQL system tables

SYNOPSIS
       mysql_fix_privilege_tables --password=root_password

DESCRIPTION
	   Note
	   In MySQL 5.1.7, mysql_fix_privilege_tables was superseded by mysql_upgrade, which
	   should be used instead. See mysql_upgrade(1).

       Some releases of MySQL introduce changes to the structure of the system tables in the
       mysql database to add new privileges or support new features. When you update to a new
       version of MySQL, you should update your system tables as well to make sure that their
       structure is up to date. Otherwise, there might be capabilities that you cannot take
       advantage of.

       mysql_fix_privilege_tables is an older script that previously was used to uprade the
       system tables in the mysql database after a MySQL upgrade.

       Before running mysql_fix_privilege_tables, make a backup of your mysql database.

       On Unix or Unix-like systems, update the system tables by running the
       mysql_fix_privilege_tables script:

	   shell> mysql_fix_privilege_tables

       You must run this script while the server is running. It attempts to connect to the server
       running on the local host as root. If your root account requires a password, indicate the
       password on the command line like this:

	   shell> mysql_fix_privilege_tables --password=root_password

       The mysql_fix_privilege_tables script performs any actions necessary to convert your
       system tables to the current format. You might see some Duplicate column name warnings as
       it runs; you can ignore them.

       After running the script, stop the server and restart it so that any changes made to the
       system tables take effect.

       On Windows systems, MySQL distributions include a mysql_fix_privilege_tables.sql SQL
       script that you can run using the mysql client. For example, if your MySQL installation is
       located at C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1, the commands look like this:

	   C:\> cd "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1"
	   C:\> bin\mysql -u root -p mysql
	   mysql> SOURCE share/mysql_fix_privilege_tables.sql

	   Note
	   Prior to version 5.1.17, the mysql_fix_privilege_tables.sql script is found in the
	   scripts directory.

       The mysql command will prompt you for the root password; enter it when prompted.

       If your installation is located in some other directory, adjust the path names
       appropriately.

       As with the Unix procedure, you might see some Duplicate column name warnings as mysql
       processes the statements in the mysql_fix_privilege_tables.sql script; you can ignore
       them.

       After running the script, stop the server and restart it.
