create database privileges

Hi MySQL Powerusers,

I was wondering if there is a way to prevent useres from creating
databases. The scenario is for a web hosting environment where I would
like to let users only use their pre-defined database and not be able
to create any additional database (e.g. via phpmyadmin).

Thanks, Dave.

Users don't have permission to create databases by default, except the
root user. So you don't need to prevent anything, just don't give them
permission to do that.
