Hi,When you update or add privileges in MySQL grant tables(db,users,tables,columns,hosts etc) are updated. These changes takes effect when mysql server restarts. MySQL server reads all grant tables at the time of startup.If you need to affect grant table update for next client connection immediately you need command flush_privileges.RELOAD privilege allows user to fire flush_privileges command. If you need any further assistance or discussion please mail me at Thanks and regards
