It’s a matter of a few clicks to create a database in hosting cpanel. (This article only applies if your hosting provider is using cPanel).
Follow these simple steps:
- Log in to cPanel for your web site (Normally located at yoursite.com/cpanel)
- Locate the “MySQL Databases” icon and click on it
- Under Create New Database type in the name for your database (it can be something simple like db or more concrete like wpdblive)
- Click the “Create Database” button
- All done!
This will add an empty database to your account which you can now populate with data which is normally done while installing software or importing particular records.
