Current database user does not have necessary permissions to modify (ALTER) tabl

  1. Why would I be getting this error as I'm building a new website for my current site (that I own the license for), so this is a testing site and when importing my forms I get this error:

    "Current database user does not have necessary permissions to modify (ALTER) tables."

    How to fix?

    Thanks!!!

    You will want to add the alter permissions to the user you have set for your WordPress database. You will do this in your hosting control panel. If you have troubles, ask your web host for instructions on how to add the alter permissions to your WordPress database user.
