Allowing user to set up a database

wordpress

#1

Hello all. I am having trouble granting database creation privileges. I granted the person privileges for all my hosting plans but when they try to add a one click install (WordPress), an error returns saying they don’t have privileges to add a database. What can I do to allow them to create a database but not have access to all my other databases? Thanks.

You can’t. Account privileges aren’t so good at letting users set stuff up. Only administering items that already exist. You’ll have to set up the DB yourself. You can create a handful of generic ones for future use and assign Account Privileges to those.

Thanks sdayman. It seems that the wiki article indicates otherwise but obviously you are right. Great idea to create a bunch of databases and use them as needed.
