|Sysop SQL queries: $wgDBsqluser|
|The SQL user used for queries.
|Introduced in version:||pre 1.1.0|
|Removed in version:||1.5.0|
|Other settings: Alphabetical | By function|
The SQL user used for read-only queries in the (no longer existing) Special:Asksql.
|Warning:||THIS IS VERY INSECURE. If you want to allow semipublic read-only SQL access for your sysops, you should define a MySQL user with limited privileges. Review the MySQL documentation at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/grant.html on how permissions can be granted in the database subsystem.|
The MySQL user shouldn't have too many rights over the database, restrict it to SELECT only on 'cur' table for example.
