      Description

      This is a bout to backport MDL-39575 to stable supported branches, by applying the solution that was applied to master (1168a5f).

      Easy to find:

      1. Create a MySQL user who can log in but does not have permission to create a database.
      2. Start a fresh Moodle installation (no config.php present).
      3. Try and use the credentials of the MySQL user above.
      4. You'll get an error [[cannotcreatedb]] instead of a string.
