I have a linux VPS. I want to be able to create a database via SSH and still have access to it via CPanel. I tried creating a database using create database myDB and it did create it and I can see it when I use show databases; but I cannot see it when I log in to my control panel as myUser. I did try granting permissions to myUser on that database but it didn't seem to help (unless I did it wrong).

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Using CentOS and MySQL5.

Found the issue: Turns out in the source is doesn't show any databases in phpMyAdmin with a name that contains test. Just my luck to call mine autotest :)
