    Hello,

    I've had this happen before, but I could track down the user. This time I have no idea who it is.

    It looks like phpMyAdmin has allowed access for a user to create a "test" database that everyone now has access to view.

    Anyways, I've looked for MySQL logs and read through the forums without success.

    Has anyone else experienced this, or know how I can find out who has created MySQL databases say in the last couple days or check the owner of a db?

    Thanks!

    Just delete the test database. It's primarily just to confirm MySQL is working upon install.

    One of my users has picked up on this as well.

    The issue is with standalone installs of phpmyadmin - not with cpanel's phpmyadmin.

    All users can create the test database in a standalone install of phpmyadmin. This could obviously cause some issues with folks bulking up the database with erroneous data.
