mysql and phpmyadmin

I've just installed the latest version of mysql and phpmyadmin along with their dependancies. Is there an easy way to keep all of the users databases only visible to the person who created it, and what priviliges should be given to a standard user?

Any help appreciated, please excuse my lack of knowledge!

There are a bunch of steps to consider, and your security will end up being as good as you want it to be. I will give you this article:

Securing MySQL: step-by-step []

It is an incredible resource and describes a bunch of things you can do to secure your MySQL server. I hate to respond with a link, but securing something like this is really a task that can't be prescribed in the same manner for everybody, I don't believe, it must be done to our liking with as much knowledge about the process as you would like to know.

Good luck and HTH.
