My application is asking for database information - where do I get it?

Nearly all web applications have a database back-end that require a MySQL database. During the application's installation, you will be asked for these database details: 

  • MySQL Host - This is always "localhost"
  • Username - The user assigned to the database with adequate permissions to manipulate it.
  • Password - The password for the user assigned to the database.
  • Database Name - The name of the database you want the application to use.
Databases can be created and configured by using the "MySQL Database Wizard" within cPanel.
