Removing a user from a database

When you remove a user from a database, the user can no longer access the database.

To remove a MySQL user from a database:

  1. Click MySQL Databases under Databases in cPanel.

    Doteasy cPanel MySQL database

  2. Under Current Databases, locate the database you wish to remove a user from. Locate the specific user that you want to remove and then click the Delete icon.

    Doteasy cPanel MySQL database delete user

  3. Click Revoke User Privileges from Database to confirm the removal.

    Doteasy cPanel MySQL database revoke user privleges

NOTE: This process only removes the user from the database. If you want to delete the user from the system altogether, you will need to delete the user.
