Ajenti v : how to set up a database user

Setting up a wordpress site on Ajenti v- for Ubuntu 14 . When running the wordpress configuration I get the following error message :

Can’t select database We were able to connect to the database server (which means your username and password is okay) but not able to select the xxxxx_database database.

Are you sure it exists? Does the user xxxx_user have permission to use the xxxxx_database database? On some systems the name of your database is prefixed with your username, so it would be like xxxxx_xxxxx_database. Could that be the problem?

I don’t see a way of assigning the user to a specific database as I would normally do with mySql. When creating a user all I get asked is the name , the hostname and the password.

You’ve hopefully seen it by now, but I found that there are two db user management interfaces in Ajenti. The one under Software > MySQL where we found ourselves pulling out our hair, and the one under Websites > [a domain] > MySQL. On this screen you get the db creation, user/password creation, and Grant permissions.
