How to get a list of MySQL user accounts

300

I'm using the MySQL command line utility and can navigate through a database. Now I need to see a list of user accounts. How can I do this?

I'm using MySQL version 5.4.1.

Use this query:

SELECT User FROM mysql.user;

Which will output a table like this:

+-------+
| User  |
+-------+
| root  |
+-------+
| user2 |
+-------+

As Matthew Scharley points out in the comments on this answer, you can group by the User column if you'd only like to see unique usernames.

A user account comprises the username and the host level access.

Therefore, this is the query that gives all user accounts

SELECT CONCAT(QUOTE(user),'@',QUOTE(host)) UserAccount FROM mysql.user;
