How to Create a Database

Many PHP apps require a MySQL database to function, and these databases can be created quickly in ServerPilot.

First, open your app in ServerPilot and go to the Databases tab.

Click Create Database.

Then, choose a database name. A database username and password will be generated for you. Write these down, so you can enter them when your PHP app asks.

Finally, click Create to submit the form in ServerPilot and create the database.

If you forget to write down the database password and need to reset it, just click on the database user in ServerPilot to see the change password form.
