I have 4 db's on the "dynomutt:susann" MySQL Server. They all show up in the dreamhost mysql admin but when I go to php/myadmin, all thats there is the information_schema. Any ideas what could have happened?
It sounds to me as though you are logging into the host (phpMyAdmin) as a different user than one assigned to the database.
phpMyAdmin on the host will only show the databases where the logged in user has access.
