Otto42: @MoonbatWingnut: Just install a copy of phpMyAdmin in your own website space and you can do anything to the database you want.
I set up my domain without WordPress, then added WordPress several weeks later. Then had my host point my domain to WordPress. I also have my IP address, where I have phpMyAdmin access to a different MySQL database than WordPress, but not WordPress at all. According to HostMySite, WordPress and the IP address are on two different servers.
When you say "install in your own website space" that would have to be the WordPress server to do any good. Is that what you meant?
I ask, because the maintenance they did reversed itself and I'd like better control.
