Hi Élodie,

I think that you should create a feature request here [1].

But firstly, to improve your comment into the request, I've a question
If you set the config variable "AllowCreateDb" to false, how would you (as
an administrator) be able to create the database? Do you want to create it
manually by MySQL command line? Will you set the config to true just to
create the database and then set it back to false?
I think that something is missing in your scenario.

Have a good day,
