    I read over the entire thread regarding this and see that it says that [Case 44974] is closed as the ability was added to all tiers. I'm currently running 11.28.83, and I don't see anything in the MySQL Databases area of cPanel, nor do I see it in SQL services of WHM. Is there something I have to set somewhere to enable this functionality?

    Hi DesigningKnight,

    The title on that case is a little leading. Actually, what we ended up doing was creating a few custom functions for our patch of phpMyadmin. These functions restore (a shared webhosting safe version of) phpMyAdmin's copying & renaming features.

    So, the feature can be found in phpMyAdmin: after selecting a database from the left sidebar, look for the "operations" tab in the main window. In that tab you'll see the the rename and copy features.

    Regards,
    -DavidN
