Well, if access is denied then the user rights are not correct in the mysql database, either in the user and/or db tables.

You can add/edit directly there (requires a restart from mysql on front page of phpmyadmin.

Or do as here http://wiki.uniformserver.com/index.php/MySQL_phpMyAdmin
or Google for phpmyadmin create user for similar pages.
