How to add a mysql database and user with cPanel

Today’s demo video is on a topic that can be a bit confusing to newcomers to mysql databases and cPanel. Although the task is not super difficult, it is important that you complete all the steps or it’s possible your database may not function as intended.

We have outlined how to create the mysql database using your cPanel hosting control panel and create a database user and associate that user with the newly created database. Sounds like a mouthful but it’s worth the watch.

Let us know if you have any questions about this or anything else hosting related. Connect with us on twitter – we would love to hear form you.
