On shared hosting, the db user typically won't have create database privilege.

If database creation fails, we can offer to use the cpanel xml api.

We can try to auto-detect cpanel. Hints that cpanel may be present:

  • /usr/bin/spamassassin-cpanel
  • /etc/cpanel_exim_system_filter
  • $HOME/.cpanel/ e.g., dirname($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']) . '/.cpanel'

Note: be mindful of possible open basedir restrictions.

I think if users have cpanel, it is generally easy for them to create the DB anyway. I would say wont fix except if you feel like this is an issue for many users.

This made a mess of databaseSetup() in Installation/Controller.php. (Deeply-nested try...catch blocks.)
