High quality, yet affordable cPanel Linux hosting!

cPanel MySQL Database Wizard Interface

The MySQL Database Wizard interface in your cPanel control panel walks you through the setup of a MySQL® database, user accounts, and user privileges easily.

Please note that phpMyAdmin should not be used to create databases and database users as it does not map databases, causing problems with backups.

Accessing the MySQL Database Wizard interface

Login to your cPanel control panel using your web browser. Go to 'http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel/' (without the quotation marks). So if your domain name is 'example.com' you should go to 'http://www.example.com/cpanel/' to login to your control panel. The MySQL Database Wizard interface is in the "Databases" tab, simply click on the name or the icon to enter.
