MySQL is an open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) that is widely used in the development of web applications. It is an essential component of the popular software stacks LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl) and MERN (MongoDB, Express.js, React, Node.js). MySQL is frequently used as the backend database for dynamic websites. CMS (content management systems), e-commerce platforms, and other similar technologies other applications. It is critical in data storage and retrieval. Many web-based applications and services use a retrieval process.

In this post, I will explain some MySQL database errors. This type of error occurs frequently when installing and configuring a MySQL database.

Error :

The error message “ERROR 1410 (42000) means you are not pemitted to create a user with GRANT” indicates that you attempted to create a user in MySQL 8.0 or later while also granting them privileges in the same statement.

This error also occurred when connecting to a remote MySQL database. Since MySQL 8, you cannot (implicitly) create a user with the GRANT command.

How to resolve MySQL ERROR 1410

You must first create a user without the grant option. The following are the steps for creating a MySQL user with the grant option.


Replace the user name ‘vishal‘ with yours.

After creating the user, use the Grant statement to assign specific permissions.


You can also use these option as grant if required GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE.


You can now grant the user permission and log in to the remote database.

How to Fix MySQL connection refused

When you try to connect to the database remotely. This occurred because you did not grant remote access to your MySQL database. This is the procedure for allowing remote access to the MySQL database.

Here is the command to check the host information in the MySQL config file. 

sudo grep -R bind /etc/mysql

Open the following files.


This should be updated in both files.

bind-address         =

Save the file and restart the mySQL database service. You should now be able to connect to the database successfully. Check that you have created a user with the “%” option (CREATE USER ‘username’@’%’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘password‘;). It will give us the ability to connect from any host.
