I added database directly in ispconfig. Here is my procedure (directly in ISPConfig):
1) create database and safe database without remote access
2) edit database and allow remote access only
3) check database permission in phpMyAdmin => permission is for localhost only => remote access doesn't work
4) add permission manually in phpMyAdmin => remote access work as expected
In point 2 I can allow specific IP only and result is the same .. no changes in permissions at all.
