I have sites I'd love to bring to Cloudways but I guess I need to keep giving my money to another host.
The proposed workaround from Cloudways does not allow a single user to access both databases (the main app db and the empty stack db). It's 2017. Seriously. Your tool has a "Create new database" option but you deny access. Why? Nobody has yet answered that question. It can access the "Information Schema" database as well as the app database. Why not a third or more? There's no way here to share tables or cross reference due to the user partitioning.
Please, let's get this moving. This functionality has been possible with PHPMyAdmin for years and years. CloudWays can do better here.
The proposed solution doesn't work for a single application that only has a single set of credentials but needs to connect with multiple databases or share tables.
Here, here. Let's modernize this stone age restriction.
