How to create MySQL Database Using CPanel ?
Posted by on 08 July 2016 05:25 PM


If your host uses CPanel for your site management, you can use this visual interface to create the database.

  • Log into your CPanel (typically located at for your domain).
  • Look for the option to work with databases - it may read Manage MySQL in the Databases box.
  • Scroll down to where it says: Db: _________ [add]
    • Enter your preferred database name.
    • Click Add.

    This will create a database in the format of account_databasename, where account is your username with your host, and databasename is the name you've chosen for your database.

  • Now scroll down to where it says Users.
    • Enter your preferred username and password.
    • Click Add User.

    This will create a username in the format of account_username, where account is your username with your host, andusername is the username you have just created for your new database.

  • Now scroll back up to locate the two drop down boxes with a button that says [Add User to Db]
    • In the drop down select box on the left, choose your newly created username, and in the box on the right, choose your newly created database.
    • Check "All" for Privileges.
    • Click Add User to Db.
