Creating a MySQL database
Posted by David, Last modified by Ashley L on 21 November 2019 01:28 PM

SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is an international standard in querying and retrieving information from databases. MySQL is essentially an SQL server - it responds to requests for information that are written in SQL. To use a MySQL database, you must first create it, and then add one or more users to it.

Here are the steps:

  1. To access the MySQL Account Maintenance Menu, click on the words "MySQL Databases" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. Enter the name of the new database in the blank field next to "Db:"
  3. Click on "Add Db" to create the database

Troubleshooting: You need to create at least one database user and grant that user permission to use the new database. Refer to Creating a MySQL user and Grant a user's permissions to a MySQL database for more information.
