Before you can manage a database in phpMyAdmin it needs to be created and have a user assigned to it.
In the cPanel select “MySQL Databases”.
1) Firstly, enter a name for your database and add the database to the system.
2) Create a new user with password. This information you will require to access the database from your scripts.
3) With both a database and user created assign the user to the database and set the required priviledges for the selected user.
You can have more than one user assigned to a database.
Once you have assigned a user to a database the database can be managed using phpMyAdmin which can be accessed using the link at the bottom of the page.
