How do I create a MySQL database in cPanel?

Updated May 10th at 08:34 BST

Step 1: Login and navigate to Databases

Log into your cPanel account and click on the MySQL Database Wizard tool that will allow you to both create a new database and assign a user to it.

Step 2: Create New Database

Enter the New Database name into the text box and click Next Step.

Step 3: Create A Database User

Enter the new database Username into the text box and click Password Generator.

Step 4: Password Generator

You can use the Password Generator to generate a strong secure password for your Database User. Once you have clicked on Generate Password, check the box that says I have copied this password in a safe place, then click on Use Password.

Once you are happy with your new database Username and Password click Create User. The user will get automatically assigned to the database.

Step 5: Modify privilages

On the next page you can grant the user all privileges for the database by ticking the All Privilages box and then click Make Changes.

If you wish to create separate databases and users and then manually connect them, you can do that from the MySQL® Databases tool.
