    Hi guys. I host and maintain one website which is being redesigned by a third party. They need to setup and work with a databasee. The case is: I want to give them access to phpmyadmin but NOT to the control panel.
    How can I accomplish this?

    You can install your own copy of phpMyAdmin on the server, and be sure to secure so only you and your third party can access it.

    At this time, there is no way to have multiple logins to a single cPanel/WHM account for the purpose of accessing portions of the cPanel interface.

    Well, in the meantime, I have checked the urls being opened by cPanel and guess that my third party could be provided with this address:

    http://domainname.com:2082/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/index.php

    This seems to work fine for several domains. It is just matter of hoping that the third party doesn't try that user login to access the cpanel.

    Although, for the domain needing to give access, I obtain an "Access Denied" error page from phpmyadmin, whether I access with the above URL or even from within cPanel. Please note that the above url works well with all other domains, including those which have no configured mysql db's. The package for this domain allow up to 50 databases so there is no limit reached. What may cause this to happen?
