Setting Up MySQL Databases in the Control Panel

For Linux and Windows Web Hosting or Managed Dedicated Server packages

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

  • Log in to IONOS.

  • Click on the Hosting tile. If you have multiple contracts, select the desired hosting contract.

  • In the Databases tile, click Manage > Create Database.

  • Assign a password. The creation process helps you choose a secure password.
    Optional: Enter a description for your database.

  • Click Save. The details of the database are displayed and setup begins.

Additional Notes
  • A predefined database password can no longer be displayed, only newly assigned. Therefore, keep the password safe.
  • After the database has been completed, you can manage it with phpMyAdmin. You can find out how to access the program included in your contract together with other solutions in the MySQL Databases Section of the Help Centre.
