Adding MySQL Databases and Users in Plesk 10

This is a quick video post demonstrating how to add MySQL Databases and User accounts using the Plesk 10 Control Panel.

Some important things to remember:

  • Keep your username prepended to the start of the Database name to avoid issues with duplication
  • Choose a username that you will easily remember, perhaps related to the domain
  • Every team member can be assigned their own user account to ensure better change tracking
  • You can and should create separate MySQL Databases for each web application you are running
