    I've finally got everything almost working. I downloaded the package and installed the phpMyAdmin tool. So, here's how I go step-by-step:

    I go to and login as a client (not admin). After logging in I see the 2 sites that the client has. There are and I go to Tools > phpMyAdmin. It then asks for a username and password. Previously, as the admin (not client), I created a user for (web5_admin). So, at the login prompt for phpMyAdmin, I enter in '' as the user and enter in the password I set for the user. Well, if I try to use a password, login fails. So, I didn't use a password and I was able to login.
    After logging in, there are already 2 databases there: "information_schema" and "test." I also don't have permission to create any databses. So, how do a make a databse for

    You must use the username and password that you entered when you created the databases in ISPConfig, not the web admin user (web5_admin).
