How to grant privileges to a user on a database specifically (i.e. not globally) in PHPMyAdmin?

+1
−1

In PHPMyAdmin 5.1.1 I have created a user account and a database with the same name and granted all privileges to the user on that database.

I have exported the database to a backup file, deleted the database, recreated the database empty (i.e. created a new empty database with the same name) and then imported the content of the export backup into the new database.

I have found how to grant a user global privileges but not how to grant a user specific privilege's (i.e. privileges on a specific database).

Under User accounts > (user) Edit privileges, there is a tab I would define as "somewhat hidden", named "Database" which is different than the default "Global" tab;
There, one could control which database-specific privilege/s a user has.
