Hi, I have a few database admin-related functions that I want to integrate into a rails app. Some specific MySQL commands are GRANT and REVOKE that do not return a recordset, and "SHOW PROCESSLIST" which does return a recordset but does not have an underlying table. I started trying to do this by getting a new connection ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection() and working with that. But the only way I've gotten it to work is to supply new connection credentials. It's definitely not railsey to maintain connection info in two places. How can I make a second connnection to whichever db is active in database.yml? (ie development, test, production) Is there a better way to execute something like "create database..." or GRANT/REVOKE than making a second connection? Thanks! Gary H.
