How to create a database in cPanel?
Any CMS (content management system) like Word Press, Drupal or Joomla needs a database (DB) which is used to store data. In fact, most scripts used today on web sites need databases.
So, before I install any CMS or a script that needs a DB on my site, I had to create a database which later would be connected to the files of my site in my hosting account. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it myself because I didn’t know anything about databases. Yet, it turned out to be very simple when using cPanel.
- I went to cPanel -- > Databases -- > MySQL Database Wizard.
- I created a database following 3 easy steps: I had to make up the name of the database, the name of the user for the database and the password. I gave all privileges to the user.
- I wrote down this information for future reference.
