There are four steps to creating a database in cPanel:
- From the main cPanel dashboard click the ‘MySQL Databases‘ icon under the Databases section.
- Create the Database: Add a database name in the ‘New Database:‘ box, then click ‘Create Database‘. Go back.
- Create the DB User: Add a database user in the ‘Username:‘ and ‘Password:‘ boxes, then click ‘Create User‘. Go back.
- Add the User to the Database: Select the User and Db you just created from the “Add Users To Your Databases:” drop-down boxes, then click ‘Add User to Database‘
If the User and/or Database you have created do not appear in the drop-down boxes, try refreshing the page.
