Creating Databases

This section provides information about creating MySQL databases. The control panel makes database management easy for those people who don't have in-depth knowledge of the topic.

Creating Databases

From the main control panel menu click the "MySQL Management" icon and then click the "Create new Database" link.

Choose a Database Name that helps you remember what the database is for.  For example, enter "chat" if the database is intended to be used with a chat script.  The database name is always preceded by your username and an underscore.  If you chose "chat" for a name, the actual database name would be username_chat.

The Database Username is the login name for the database.  It may be the same as the Database Name.  In the above example, we chose a different login name (admin).  As with the Database Name, the Database Username is also preceded by your username and an underscore (username_admin in this case).

After you have selected the database name and username, enter a database password and click the "Create" button.
