I created a new database and it's not showing up in my root directory. In cPanel, I'm able to see it and added myself as a user to that database with all privileges but for some reason it isn't showing up. Please advise. Thx

Hi Evangel,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. Databases are not files and therefore do not show up in File Manager. Databases can be accessed using PHPMyAdmin. Here's an article on using PHPMyAdmin:
