Create a database in Plesk

You can create new databases on your Windows server directly through Plesk.

  1. Log in to Plesk.
  2. On the right-hand side, click Databases.
  3. Click Add New Database.
  4. Give your database a name in the Database Name box.
  5. Choose your database type, either MySQL or SQL Server.

    Note: You will not be able to choose SQL Server until you add SQL Server Standard/Web or Express to Plesk.

  6. Create a database user name in the Database user name box.
  7. Give this database user name a password in the New Password box, and confirm it in the next box.
  8. (MySQL only): Select what type of remote access you want to allow in the Access Control section.
  9. Once you are satisfied with your selections, click OK.

You now have a new database on your server.
