Join Jon Peck for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating databases and users, part of Up and Running with Linux for PHP Developers.
…In order to develop sites, we're going to have to create some databases and users.…We're going to create two databases.…One for the Dashboard, that we're going to be making.…And another called Sandbox for experimenting…with application installation, later in the course.…From the browser, in phpMyAdmin, over in the upper left,…click on Server Localhost to go back to the main menu.…Then click on Users.…We're presented with a list of all available mySQL users.…Let's add a user for the Dashboard first.…
So click Add User.…For the username I'm going to specify Dashboard.…For host, I will specify percent for any host.…Password will be Dashboard.…I'll type it again.…And then underneath, for the Database for user, create…database with the same name and grant all privileges.…When ready, go down to the bottom and click Go.…The user and the database were created.…Let's create a Sandbox user and database in the same way.…Click Add User.…
User name is Sandbox.…Host, again, percent for any host.…For the password, Sandbox, retype Sandbox.…
