MySQL Privs

What privs does the user for silverstripe require on the DB server? I'm obviously not going to use root but am reluctant to give it all the other privs as well, if it doesn't need them...

Hi there,

I think that SS requires all the standard insert/update/delete row privileges, plus create table/alter table for running db rebuilds.

Also, if you want to create the db during the install the user will need create database privileges, but if you create the db manually this isn't necessary.

Of course I could be wrong - im no DB expert, so someone please correct me if i am ;)
