My pleasure pwm.
This "priviliges to make db's in myPhPadmin" is a new issue that's arisen since you're first post above? So, we've moved on? I'll assume that is the case. I'll also assume you mean phpMyAdmin, just to be sure.
This seems to be a MySQL issue and as such, my knowledge/experience is very limited. It is MySQL access/privileges that determine if a user may create a database, or for that matter, insert/drop/alter etc.
Are you getting into phpMyAdmin as root?
If so, you _should_ have all 'global' privileges, including CREATE. As root, we could probably give root back the ability to create.
EDIT: I've found http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/index.html
very useful. That's _not_ an FTFQ...
