I may have missed the post prior, but I believe this is true only of sqLite databases. In a mySQL database, LC would not create a new database because of the security built into mySQL. So far as I know, if you want to create a new mySQL database, you will have to shell in to a mySQL server. Also, if it is a hosted server you may not be able to do even that because of the front end security involved.
