Actually (someone correct me if I’m wrong), I do not believe you can “chmod” a MySQL database. However, you can chmod files on your server.
And anyone can write, execute, and read a database – as long as the owner gives them all permission. Almost all database driven sites allow users to do all of those.
You do have to be careful when chmodding some files on a server though, because if someone finds a hole in your security…
BTW anytime you have a webbased editor, protect it with an htaccess if its not password protected. I found some Chinese website that I was able to go into and edit whatever I pleased from their editor. I simply warned them about the vulnerability and went on my way. The moral of the story – you’re not going to get off easy if you don’t take the precautions. I myself have just recently realized many problems with my own site in terms of security. God I could have seriously been F****d.
