When you create a database, many users are unaware that there are several other items that you need to do as well. The new database creation process actually involves:

  1. Creating a database
  2. Creating a database user
  3. Giving your database user access to work with your database

Luckily for us, cPanel includes a MySQL Database Wizard that walks you through each of these steps.

Creating a database in cPanel using the MySQL Database Wizard:

  1. Log into your cPanel.
  2. Click the MySQL Database Wizard under the Databases heading.
  3. Next to New Database enter a name for your database and click Next Step.
  4. Next to Username enter a username.Enter a password next to Password, enter it again for Password (Again) and then click Create User.
  5. On the next page, you'll assign privileges for the user to the database. Check the box next to All Privileges and then click Next Step.

Congratulations, now you know how to successfully create a database!
