How do I create a mysql database?

The easiest way is to login to this support system and open a new ticket asking for a MySQL database (please specify the domain name of the site you would like the database for and your requested database name).

It will request a password, which is your user password.

When creating a database, please preface the database name with your username to avoid naming collisions (for example: joe_phpbb).
