When ever I type in :

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES minecraft.* TO 'minecraftu'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY '********';

It gives me an error of :

ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'minecraft.* TO 'minecraftu'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY '********'' at line 1

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON minecraft.* TO 'minecraftu'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY '*********'; Still didn't work. – user2833135 Oct 28 '13 at 21:48
So what was the error, then? – Michael Hampton Oct 28 '13 at 21:52
