There may be situations where you need to create databases using cpanel such as while setting up forums or helpdesk tools or any applications which require a database to store data. Many times we don’t realize that wordpress is using its own database if you have installed wordpress using fantastico or quick install. These tools will create the database and populate tables required for the wordpress by itself. But when comes to the applications which are installed outside the cpanel or not through cpanel then you may have to go through the steps of creating database and adding users to this database. Later this username , password and database name would be required to install the applications such as vbulletin or mybb etc.
1. Login to cpanel
2. click on Mysql
3. Type in your DB Name to be created according to your choice
4. Create a user and attach that user to the DB which you have created
