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!

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.
