How do I create a database user?
You can create a user separately from creating a database. Database accounts are different to email and web administrator accounts.
You have to create a database user account before you can add the user to an existing database.
To create a new user account, perform the following steps:
- Click MySQL Databases from the control panel.
- Scroll down to Add New User.
- Enter a username in the Username text box.
Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes. You can use the Password Generator button to create a strong password if you prefer.
There is an indicator below the password boxes showing how strong the password is.
You must choose a password stronger than 65. This is to help protect your database accounts from hacking. A secure password contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbol and is not a dictionary word.
- Click Create User.
