MySQL Database

MySQL Database

MySQL databases are required to run many web-based applications, such as information dashboards, content management systems, and online shopping carts.

Step 1 

Logged into your cPanel, in the DATABASE tab, locate the item “Manage My Database”

note: The item is also called "MySQL Databases" in older versions of cPanel



Step 2

Now let's create a bank. Just choose a name for this database and then click on “Create database”.

A success message should be displayed.


Step 3 

Now you must create a user to be able to use this database. Scrolling down the tab you will find the option to create a user as in the image, fill in all the spaces with the necessary information.


After clicking create the success message should be displayed again.

Step 4

Now we have to link the user to the bank. To do this, go to the bottom of the page and find the option “Add user to database”. Select the user and bank you want to link, be careful when choosing if you have more than one user or bank.



When you click add you will be redirected to the screen below, where you will choose the user's privileges.


You can change privileges in the future, just go to your databases and click on the name of the user you want to change the permission.
