MariaDB 10.4 mysql.user moved ot mysql.global_priv

Since MariaDB 10.4, the User Permission portion of the MySQL Database module cannot modify data nor add new users. There is a small change with mysql.user.

All user accounts, passwords, and global privileges are now stored in the mysql.global_priv table. The mysql.user table still exists and has exactly the same set of columns as before, but it’s now a view that references the mysql.global_priv table. Tools that analyze the mysql.user table should continue to workas before.

I will pass this to Jamie for a review. Thanks for the feedback.

There's ongoing work to switch Webmin from editing mysql.user directly to using alter user commands.

This has been implemented in Webmin 1.960 and Virtualmin 6.13 is going to have support for it (MariaDB 10.4+ and MySQL 8+) too. Let us know if it works for you.

You can continue discussion here as well.
