I can't seem to find a resource in the internet that explains how to do this from the command line or phpmyadmin. I'm using Ubuntu Server 13.04 in Amazon EC2.

I have no idea of how that software works, but I know how to create users for MySQL. If that is what you want to, just let me know and I'll write an answer. – Lucio Sep 11 '13 at 0:25

Simply do what you do on the Linux system running your phpmyadmin:

  • Keep the root account as is.
  • Create other users with appropriate permissions for their roles.
  • From now on use those for normal activities, and the root only when necessary.
