MySQL Database Access Outside of cPanel


How do I grant permissions to cPanel for my MySQL database administrator without giving them the domain password?


There is no way to grant them permission to just MySQL or phpMyAdmin. You can have them access the database remotely (using software such as Navicat). However, they will not be able to create databases, users or assign permissions. These functions must be performed within the cPanel.
