In cPanel, navigate or scroll down to the databases section. Here select the MySQL databases option. And rest you can figure it out yourself. But if you can’t, then continue reading..

You can find a box which says ‘Create New Database‘. All you need to do over here is just enter the name of the database. And hit the ‘Create Database‘ Button.

Your database will be created. You can now use this database for WordPress, Joomla, etc. But you’ll need to add users to the newly created database. In the next post we’ll see how to add users to the MySQL database.
