Setting Up MySQL Databases in the Control Panel

For Linux and Windows Web Hosting packages and Managed Dedicated Servers

MySQL is a powerful relational database management system that is widely used in conjunction with web applications. You can create a MySQL database with just a few clicks:

  • Log in to IONOS and select Hosting > Databases > Manage.

  • Click Create Database.

  • Optional: Select the MySQL version.

Please Note

The option to choose a MySQL version is only available for Managed Dedicated Servers.

  • Optional: Enter a description to help differentiate your databases.

  • Enter the desired password.

  • Click Save.

The system will now start the setup in the background and will already display the access details in the meantime. You can obtain these again later at any time on the database overview page.

Please Note

We recommend that you write down the password immediately as you will not be able to view it later.
