Default jailkit ssh user and mysql access

Hello to all. Today I wanted to give to a specific ssh user access to mysql. This user was created with jailkit chroot access on the server. What I did was to copy the necessary files from root to this user's folders. To be more speciic I did the following:

1. Copied /usr/bin/mysql to /var/www/clients/client1/webX/usr/bin/
2. Copied /usr/lib/ to /var/www/clients/client1/webX/usr/lib/. This file is a link, so I copied and the equivalent library file in the same folder
3. Copied /usr/lib/ to /var/www/clients/client1/webX/usr/lib/. Same as above.
4. Copied /lib/ to /var/www/clients/client1/webX/lib/

By doing these steps, the user got access to the mysql, and only on his own domain database, as I wanted.

What I would like to ask is if what I did was the right way to configure that, or there is a better way to do it.

Thank you all for your time.
