I run a system called pMachine for my website. It's php/MySQL blogging software.

They say I must make sure that my database user has ALTER privileges in order for their update script to work. Since I ran it, and it seems to have had some problems, I thought I'd ask whether we have alter privileges or not... Thanks.

By the way, it is an MDH05 account.

I don't believe you have ALTER privileges if you are on a shared server. If you need higher permissions in MySQL than you currently have, you would need to order a VPS account that supports MySQL.
