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:

  1. Click MySQL Databases from the control panel.
  2. Scroll down to Add New User.
  3. 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.

  4. Click Create User.
