Special permissions for user
I have a server and I need to add a new user who will have telnet access to ONLY 1 or 2 MYSQL databases and not the others.
He also will have FTP access as well.
I don't want to give him my username and password for obvious security reasons.
I was told that a new user can be set up with special permissions, but I don't know exactly how to do it.
I am running the following:
FreeBSD (latest version)
MySQL (latest version)
Apache (latest version)
Please let me know how to make a special setup for this user.

Just RTFM via man 8 adduser. Then he should be able to telnet/ftp immediately. For MySQL, you need to add another user (him).
You keep saying special permissions in your duplicated posts (in other forums), how special exactly?
