How Do You Create A New Database in cPanel?

A database will basically store all data your website saves. If you use WordPress for example, the database has all post and page information. The post you’re reading right now is saved in a database.

If you want to run a WordPress, magento or Opencart website a database is essential.

Adding A Database

First, go to CPanel and login. You’ll see a section with the name “Databases”. Click on “MySQL Databases”. The rest is pretty straightforward, there is a button which says ‘create new database’. Of course you’ll need to give the database a name first, after that you can click the button to create it.

That’s it, the database is ready for use.

    Awesome site you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!

    Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    excellent blog!
