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.
