Creating a Database
Creating databases and users is easy but not the most intuitive process. The first thing you need to
do to create a database is actually the last item in the database section. Type the name of the
database into the Db: field and then click on the Add Db button. A database will be created and its
name will be displayed at the top of the page.
The actual name of the database will be slightly different from the one you choose. The
database will be created with your cPanel username and an underscore character added to
the beginning of the name you chose when you created the database, for example,
Creating a Database User
Creating a database just creates an empty shell, waiting for data. Before you can use the database,
you will need to put at least one user into the database. To create a new user, you need to type a
username and password into the user section of the database screen and then click Add User. This
will create a user with the password you define. Never leave the password field blank.
The database username will be your cPanel username followed by an underscore and then
the username you chose. For example, domain_jeff
Adding a User to a Database
You aren't done yet. You now have to associate at least one user with a database. Just above the
Add Db field is a set of drop-down lists. The first of these allows you to select a user that you have
already created and the second allows you to select the database that you want to associate with
that user. Click Add User to Db and you are done. You can add a single user to multiple databases
if you want to.
Once you add a user to the database you've created, you will notice that the listing for that
database gets more detailed. It will show you the database name followed by some links to delete
or repair the database and then it will show you every user in that database, along with sample
code that shows you how to connect to the database in a PHP, Perl, or JDBC script (JDBC is only
listed if your web host offers Java support).
Then when you need to setup the parameters in the program to access the database
