How do I create a database for my website if I don't have Plesk or cPanel?

If your web hosting provider isn't running CPanel or Plesk, then there are a few different ways you can create a database for your store. Each different method is explained below:
  1. Create a database using PHPMyAdmin - PHPMyAdmin is a database tool that you can use to create and modify databases on your web server. Most hosting providers will create a link to PHPMyAdmin from their control panel. Once you find the link, simply click on it and PHPMyAdmin will open up. It will look something like this:



    You should see a field that's labeled "Create a new database". In the text box, simply type in a name for your store's database, such as "websitedb" and click the "Create" button. Your new MySQL database will then be created and is ready to use.
  2. Create a database in your control panel - If you're web hosting provider isn't running PHPMyAdmin then they might offer an alternate way to create a database from your hosting control panel. Look for a link that says something like Create database, New database, Add MySQL database, etc. You should then be asked for a name for your database. Enter something such as "websitedb".
  3. Ask your web hosting provider to create a database - Failing everything else, you can simply email or call your web hosting provider and ask them to create a database for you. Make sure you ask them to send you back an email that contains your MySQL user, password, hostname and database name.
