Creating a new MySQL user

How to create a new MySQL user in the Web Control Panel.

  1. Log into your control panel
  2. Click the “Development Tools ” tab in the left frame
  3. A Sub menu will appear in the left frame, click on “MySQL”
  4. At the top of the new page you will see “Overview”, “Databases”, “Users”, “Documentation”, click on “Users”.
  5. If your plan allows the use of databases, and you have not already setup all of the allowed users, the available users will be displayed in a dropdown box. After entering a valid password (must be at least 4 characters), click on “Create User”.

IMPORTANT: After you create a new MySQL user, it has no permissions to access or operate on any MySQL database. You must explicitly grant the user permission to a database. Click here for more information.
