Can I set up a user to have phpmyadmin access without cPanel access?

I'm setting up a server with a friend with a forum and a small front site. I would also like to use this site for a personal blog, a way to market my own writing, etc., all of it separate from the forum. I would like to give him access to just the FTP and database for the forum and front site, but I don't want him to have access to the other sites. When I link directly to the phpMyAdmin, it asks for the cPanel login info. Is there a way to give him access to phpMyAdmin without giving out the main cPanel login information?

Hello Flannery012,

You can certainly set up phpmyadmin for access without having to go through cPanel. I have an article here that takes you through that process.
