 +===== 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.  \\ {{:​email:​email_accounts:​password_strength.png?​nolink|}} \\ 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//.
