I am testing pkgacct/restorepkg and it fails to transfer grants for username_%
The grants are defined in source MySQL as
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `username\_%`.* TO 'username'@'localhost'


From WHM 11.40.1 (build 11) to 11.42.0 (build 17)
From MySQL 5.5.35 to MySQL 5.5.36
From pkgacct to restorepkg

Error message is:
Skipping grants for these MySQL databases: username_%. These databases don't exist in the archive

Do you have any ideas what can be the reason?

To update, an internal case has been opened to address /scripts/resotrepkg skipping wildcard grants for users when restoring cpmove archives. The internal case number is 92945. The current workaround is to add the grants manually. Here is an example:

Code:
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `abc\_%`.* TO 'abc'@'localhost';
Thank you.

Each database should have specific grants, so wildcard grants are not required when the account is packaged. Please confirm if you have any actual issues with your database since it's been restored.

Thank you.

When restoring cpbackup (user.tar.gz) from Nov 2013 in WHM 11.42.1 (build 12) :

Restoring MySQL databases....
Restoring database user_zzdb......
Restoring MySQL privs
Skipping grants for these MySQL databases: user_%. These databases don't exist in the archive.

Privileges in MySQL are then only set for the restored databases(s) like:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `user\_zzdb`.* TO 'user'@'localhost'

When you add a new database in cPanel, the wildcard grant
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON `user\_%`.* TO 'user'@'localhost'
is getting added automatically to grants list and stays there until you kill the account.

So this 'Skipping grants for these... user%' sounds alarming (shoudn't it be dismissed?)
but the restored account works and additional databases can be created.

Wildcard grants are no longer set in cPanel version 11.44. You should see no ill effects when the wildcard grant is not restored, as it's an intended change when restoring an account that was merged ahead of time.

Thank you.
