MySQL Error "ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user"

This happened with a select statement which writes the result to an external file.  I didn't remember the privilege "FILE" must be granted on *.* for this to work successfully, it wasn't actually an authentication issue as it implies since I was already in the SQL prompt and doing the query.

SELECT some_id
FROM sometable
INTO OUTFILE '/tmp/result.txt'

Keep in mind that the above won't work even with permissions set to 777,  your user must have privileges from MySQL to write to the filesystem.
