What is MySQL?
MySQL is one of the most popular and powerful Open Source databases in the world.
How do I create a MySQL database for my website?
Your website comes with one MySQL database by default. Some hosting packages offer the option to create multiple databases. To create a new database, go to MySQL Management -> Create new Database in your DirectAdmin portal.
- Database name: enter a unique name (8 character max)
- Database username: enter a unique name (8 character max) or select a previously created user
- For a new user, enter a new password twice; for an existing user, the password will automatically be entered
- Click create.
The database has been created, a summary will appear on your screen.
How do I manage my MySQL database?
You can manage your database in the DirectAdmin portal (MySQL Management -> PhpMyAdmin). You received your username and password after the creation of your hosting package.
