How can you protect your database by user permissions. I am looking for a way to do this via PHPMyAdmin

Mysql has a data dictionary which is a database called mysql. If you can use that database, you can set permissions for individual users by using the grant statement (which also allows you to create users). I have a few examples in a mysql section of the tech page off my homepage. Link is in my sig.

If you are in a hosted environment, chances are you have had a database user created for you, and will not have access to the mysql database.
