Webmin MySQL trouble reading database

I'm running Webmin 1.130 on a Debian 3.0r1 machine, and I'm experiencing difficulties when attempting to read my MySQL databases. I set the module config and all. It's just that when I click on the MySQL icon, it offers me the option of creating a new database, saying that I don't have the permissions to read or write to "this database." I know that I've also set the MySQL account/password up correctly too.
I would appreciate some assistance with the issue.
Also, all of my other Webmin modules work perfectly, if it matters.

Thanks for the advice.
I spent some time tweaking Webmin and it turns out that buried deep in the configuration files it was reading the wrong database. I'll take a look at phpmyadmin, but for now Webmin is great.

edit: I just looked at phpmyadmin, and it only manages MySQL. Webmin does that and so much more, including managing my Apache 1.3 server, sendmail, SSHD, LILO, and general system config. That list isn't all-inclusive, either.
Besides, I'm only using the database for my PHPbb bulletin board, so I can use the built-in management tool. Finally, I only expect to make sure that the server is running properly and if necessary stop, start, or restart it from Webmin. Although, looking at how advanced phpmyadmin is, if someday I do need to manage a MySQL database using an "external" application, I will definitely download it and use it.
