I’ve added the necessary permissions for everyone who has a mysql database here so that Joomla should work without any modification to your permissions if you already have a database.
Anyone who would like to use Joomla or needs a mysql database for other reasons, please e-mail support and one will be created for you. Please include your login and a desired password in your e-mail.
If you setup Joomla, one thing to be aware of, after you complete the install and remove the installation directory, your browser will still try to run install when you try to go to your Joomla home page. The fix for this is to clear your browser cache.
