    Ubuntu 12.04 MySQL User


    I'm looking for a bit of help creating an Ubuntu user account (not a MySQL user account) to remotely administer MySQL from MySQL Workbench.

    Workbench uses SSH to initiate admin commands and the setup wizard specifies that:

    This account needs write access to the my.cnf database config file, read access to the database logs and privileges to start/stop the database daemon.

    I'm currently running the MySQL Ubuntu box as a VM, so i've enabled the root account for this purpose and that's working fine. However, I want to move MySQL to a more potentially vulnerable location and would like to do things properly.

    Any suggestions?
