    I am setting up word press by following the directions given on the wordpress.org site. The instructions indicate to give all privileges to the database user. I am wondering if the “Grant option” is really necessary? If it is, for what does WP use it?

    When one sets up the database for a wordpress website, one has to set up a database user for the database. A database user is given various permissions. One of those permissions is GRANT. I would like to know if “Grant” is really necessary and if so what do it allow WP to do?
