How to create a MySQL database

Do you need a MySQL Database for a mod or plugin on your server, but are not sure how to create one?  Once you have ensured that you have access to MySQL in your server description page, follow the steps below to create the Database on your server:

Step 1. Log into your Multicraft console. This is the page where you control your server.

Step 2. Once you are logged in, click on Advanced in the left hand list, then click on MySQL Database in the menu on the left-hand side.



Step 3. If there is no Database currently associated with this server, you will see a "There is currently no database associated with this server." message. Click on “Create Database” in the menu on the left side, and click Ok when prompted if you want to create a database.


Step 4. Once you've done this, your database's information will be displayed. This will include host, username, and password. For the port you will just need to use the default MySQL port number, which is 3306. Please note that your database's name will always be the same as your username.

If you have any difficulties following this guide, or if you need to purchase the MySQL Database Addon but aren't sure how, feel free to open a ticket with our support staff.
