Log into your cPanel account.

In the "Databases" section, click on the "MySQL Databases" icon.

Under the "Create New Database" section, enter a name for your new database in the "New Database" field. It's recommended to use a descriptive name that relates to your website or application.

Once you've entered the database name, scroll down and click the "Create Database" button.
Your new MySQL database has now been created successfully.

Additional Steps:
• To manage your new database, you can assign a user to it by following these steps:

In the "MySQL Databases" section, scroll down to the "Current Databases" area.

Locate your newly created database and click on the "plus" icon next to it.

Enter a username and password for the new user you want to assign to this database.

Click "Create User" to finalize the process.
