Creating A Database

Navigate to your cPanel Login Screen.

cPanel Login

Once in cPanel, navigate to the Databases tab and select MySQL Databases.

Create New Database

Create a database by setting the database name and clicking “Create Database.”

You can use an existing database user, but it’s more secure to use different users for each database. Create a new user by setting the user name and password and clicking “create user.”

Create User

Once you have both a database and a user, assign the user to the database by selecting the appropriate user and database in the Add User To Database dropdown and clicking “add.”

Assign User to Database

Set all of the privileges for the user.

Set User Permissions

Now your database has a user and is ready for deployment!
