How to create a MySQL database

To create a MySQL database, log in to Control Panel and go to Sites > Click on your Site Account > MySQL. 
  1. Click Add.
  2. Enter a database name. The database name must be unique* and contain only alpha-numeric characters (maximum 12 characters).
  3. Enter a database user name.  The user name must be unique and contain only alpha-numeric characters (minimum of 4, maximum of 12 characters).
Note:  The password will default to the site's FTP password, which you can change later in MySQL Manager [Home > Sites List > Site Manager > MySQL > Manage]

Once the database is created, you can view your "Database Name," "Database Server," "Database User," "Database Password," "Assigned Quota" and the current quota "Usage."

*Database names must be unique on our system - meaning there can only be one database with a given name, even if the databases belong to different accounts. So bear in mind that it may not be possible to use a common or generic database name when setting up your database.
In addition to backing up your site files, our SiteBackup service can also back up your databases. Now you can control backup retention and schedule. Automate your backups with SiteBackup.
