How to Create a Database

Many PHP apps require a MySQL database. You can create MySQL databases for apps in ServerPilot.

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

Click Create Database. You'll see the form below.

Enter a name for the new database you're creating.

A database username and password will be generated for you. If you prefer, you can enter your own database username and password.

Your database password will not be shown again after the database is created. However, you can always set a new database password.

Finally, click Create Database to create the database.
