Which has the same effect as the suggestion in an earlier reply:
flush privileges, but results in a longer outage of mysql. An
alternative to doing "flush privileges" from the mysql client is
to do a "mysqladmin flush-privileges" (or "mysqladmin reload" which
means the same thing but is less typing).
And you didn't use the Windows approach. The Windows approach is
to reboot the computer any time you make a change. In fact, the
Windows approach is to force a reboot upon you any time you make even
a trivial change to the configuration.
I suspect the day is not far off when Windows will report "You have
changed a critical configuration flag by toggling the caps-lock key.
Windows must reboot now." Followed in a future release by "Windows has
detected that the position of the mouse has changed and must reboot." (oh,
my mistake - that last feature has been in Windows all along, it just
fails to work most of the time and when it does work you think it's
a random crash). BTW, does anyone know if Microsoft-owned Hotmail is
still using qmail despite Bill's repeated attempts to force them to
switch to Exchange? :)
