MySQL database setup

Zenphoto does most of the schema work, but you must still create a user and a blank database.

mysql -u root -p

mysql> create database zenphoto;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.03 sec)

mysql> use mysql;
Reading table information for completion of table and column names
You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

Database changed
mysql> GRANT ALL ON zenphoto.* to zpadmin@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.13 sec)
