I have a client who has an existing MySQL database from an earlier Ensim install. I'd really like to give my client access to this DB from within Cpanel, as well as the ability to use PHPMySQLAdmin with it.

Is this possible somehow? I know if I try to add the name in cpanel, cpanel will add the username to the database name.

Thanks!

create new database at C-panel : username_test. go to : /var/lib/mysql
mv username_test username_test.bkp
copy the ensin database to this folder.
mv domainname_ensim username_test
======================================================
now add the user and you will be able to access the databse if it is intact.
