I know for sure I can't connect from anywhere else, only the server 
itself. But I *think* I have full privileges to do what I want with the 
database, but I need to do some further checking, I suppose. It says I 
have 'amdmin privilegs' but that might not be the same as what I need to 
create databases outside of the control panel.
