How do I create a MySQL database in Plesk?

Step 1. Login and select Databases

First, login to your Plesk account. If you don't have your username and password, you'll need to contact your web hosting provider.

Once you've logged in, click on the Databases icon. Keep in mind that your Plesk account may be using a skin or different theme depending on your host, so it will not always look exactly like the screenshot below.

Step 2. Create your Database and User

When you reach the next page, you will need to click on the 'Add New Database' icon.

Type in a name for your new database, make sure type is set to MySQL and click "OK".

On the next screen you should see a database created successfully message. You now need to add a user. So select the "Add New Database User" icon below the success message.

Fill in the details on the form with your desired username and password.

You should now have all the details for your database. If you are not given a "host", try "localhost". If that does not work, you will need to contact your hosting provider to ask what you MySQL Host is.

That's it. You're now ready to use the MySQL database that you just created.
