Problem with user management in mysql module

Webmin

  • Hi,

    This error message appears in webmin each time I try to modify or delete a user (Global Options > User Permissions).

    Failed to save user : SQL flush privileges failed : Can't find file: './mysql/servers.frm' (errno: 13)

    I searched my server and found out the file is located at

    /var/lib/mysql/mysql/servers.frm

    What can I do to make Webmin look at the right place ?

    Thanks

    Matthieu

     
  • Solved. My SQL server was corrupted for whatever reason. Upgrading to latest version and rebooting solved the bug.

    hmm
    that upgrade may have changed the pathing!
    recheck where all those files are SUPPOSED to be
    also use the webmin configuration back and back up all the webmin config files weekly. they overwrite.
