In the WordPress world, privileges are mostly used in relation to the database where data such as posts and user information is stored. Privileges dictate the type of access a database server user has on the WordPress database. For example the user WordPress uses to connect to the database can have access to read and write data only, or can also have access to change the structure of the database, such as creating new tables. You can read more about database privileges in How to configure secure WordPress MySQL database privileges.
