You'll be wanting to get to grips with Privilages.
On the phpMyAdmin Home page, there's an icon called Privilages. Have a look in there, but take great care!
Note that Privilages can relate to users and/or databases and/or tables.
Lots of reference info at http://www.mysql.com/

Other ways of creating databases
Again, check http://www.mysql.com/

Otherwise, maybe have a look at SQLyog. http://www.webyog.com/
It's really frustrating to loose access by mistake....... Never happened to me of course.
