Yes, I tried with my priveledges, but it doesn't work, so yes, I could need some
help. I tried to add a new database as root and odassau as you can see below,
but didn't succeed with access denied:

[odassau at xblade14-2 ~]$ sudo mysqladmin -u root -p create joomla_qgisweb
Enter password:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'

[odassau at xblade14-2 ~]$ sudo mysqladmin -u odassau -p create joomla_qgisweb
Enter password:
mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Access denied for user 'odassau'@'localhost' (using password: YES)'

I am no mysql guru, so maybe someone can help, what user is allowed to create a
database under mySQL and what do I need to do and make wrong following the steps
described in the joomla manual (see below)? 

# 3.2.1. Create and Configure the MySQL Database
# To create the MySQL database run the following as the "root" user.
#    [root at t1 tmp]# mysqladmin -u root -p create Joomla
#    Enter password: 
#    [root at t1 tmp]#

# Now we need to create a MySQL user for Joomla! Here is a sample session. First
# you need to log in to MySQL as "root" and then create the user with all
# priviliges for the Joomla! database. In this example I created the user
# "joomla_admin" with the password "lockbox".

#    [root at t1 tmp]# mysql -u root -p 
#    Enter password: 
#    Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
#    Your MySQL connection id is 60 to server version: 5.0.17-standard
#    Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.
#    mysql>  GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON Joomla.* TO joomla_admin at localhost
#    IDENTIFIED BY 'lockbox';    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
#    mysql> flush privileges;
#    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
#    mysql> quit
#    Bye
#    [root at t1 tmp]# 

thanks a lot,
