yes you can. Use PHPmyadmin with administrator privilages on the database meaning the root* username and the root password. then create a database with that name and assign permissions to it (by creating users and giving them permissions on that database only)

* This is actually bad practice what you should do is create another account with some permission but not all so that you can do some stuff but i'm pretty sure you jsut want the quick fix for now
