I use MySQL Workbench and I continuously get this error. The email@example.com apparently has a lot of access but, I am logged in as that, but it just assigns to localhost anyways - localhost has no privileges.
When running SHOW GRANTS FOR root this is what I get in return:
Error Code: 1141. There is no such grant defined for user 'root' on host '%'
How can I get root its access back? Can someone please guide me on this?
