How to manually create a Database for WordPress in cPanel
If you want to install WordPress on your host manually, it is not very difficult.
All you need is access to the administration panel (cPanel) on your host, the latest WordPress download, and an FTP program to upload.
In this video, I show how to create the MySQL database in cPanel.
I assume you can already access cPanel on your Web host. Usually your domain name followed by /cpanel will get you to it. You will need your user name and password.
There are three step to creating the database for WordPress.
- Creating the database
- Creating the user with a password
- Adding the user to the database
It is very important to write down the database name, user, and password.
You will need these later when you add them to the wp_config file before you upload the WordPress files to your server. Make sure you take note of them. You will find that cPanel will add a prefix to your database and user name.
