I have no practical experience with databases or phpMyAdmin, but my provider does support MySQL and it uses phpMyAdmin to manage the databases.
My problem is this: despite successfully having created the wordpress database on the home page for my domain, I hit a snag when I come to the second item in the instructions here on WordPress.org for installing using phpMyAdmin.
2.Click the Home icon in the upper left to return to the main page, then click Privileges. If a user relating to WordPress does not already exist in the list of users, create one:
1. Click Add a new User...... and so on
I can't do these things because there is nowhere to click for "Privileges." When I click on home after clicking in the drop-down for my wordpress database, I see this:

When I click the Home icon in the upper left as per the instructions, I return to this screen: <img src="http://i973.photobucket.com/albums/ae214/BFitzcarraldo/th_phpmyadmin2.png" border="0" alt="Photobucket" >
I am logged in with the database administrator login. I don't understand how to proceed at all. I haven't got a clue.
Could someone please help me, or provide a workaround possibility?
Thanks very much.
