Create Hue Database in Red Hat


  1. Log on to MySQL with your root password:
    mysql -u root -p
    Enter password:
  2. Create a database for Hue (we call it “hue” but any name works) with UTF8 collation and grant user privileges:
    create database hue default character set utf8 default collate utf8_general_ci;
    grant all on hue.* to 'hue'@'%' identified by 'huepassword';
    select * from information_schema.schemata;
    quit
  3. Verify the connection to the Hue database:
    mysql -u hue -p
    Enter password: 
    quit

[root@server ~]# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
