Creating a database in cPanel is helpful for web developers managing large amounts of data for their websites and applications. The process is simple and essential to the development of database-intensive projects.


  • A server running cPanel.
  • cPanel login credentials with access to database permissions.

How to Set Up a Database Using the MySQL Database Wizard

1. Type https://youripaddress:2083 into your browser to access the cPanel login screen. Replace youripaddress with your actual IP address.  Enter your credentials and press Log in.

2. Click MySQL Database Wizard.

3. Enter a name for the new database and click Next Step.

4. Create a user for this database by entering a username and creating a password. Click Create User.

5. Click the All Privileges check box or select individual privileges based on your preferences for the user. Click Next Step to continue.

6. The MySQL database is created, and the new user is added. You need the database name, username, and password for connecting scripts to the database. Click Return Home to return to the cPanel home page.

7. To view your databases and make other changes, click MySQL Databases on the home page.

Here you can view and modify the database and users.
