This procedure will illustrate how to add a database using the ISPConfig3 interface. Although this can, and sometimes must, be done using phpMyAdmin, or a console client, I use the ISPConfig3 interface first if possible.

  1. Logon to the ISPConfig3 admin interface.
  2. Select the Sites tab.
  3. Select Databases from the menu on the left.
  4. Select the Add new Database button.
  5. Select the Site from the dropdown.
    • This is the site for which the database is being created.
  6. Enter the Database name.
    • Note that the Database name field is prefixed with c[CLIENTID]d[DOMAINID] making each one uniq and allowing for the remaining portion of the name to be the same.
  7. Select the Database user from the dropdown.
    • If you do not have a database user, once can be assigned later. Until then only admin will be able to access the database. To create one now, follow the ISPConfig — Add Database User procedure.
  8. Select the Save button.
