Maybe the wordpress installation restricted the rights of the user. If I
were you, I would inspect the user and db tables to find out:

        mysqldump --skip-opt mysql user
        mysqldump --skip-opt mysql db
If the output doesn't make any sense to you, post it here along with the
names of the databases you used for Joomla and MediaWiki. Someone in the
list (e.g. me) should then be able to supply you with SQL commands to
fix the access rights. Or, at the very least, it will enable us to ask
more precise questions.
