Login to your hosting Control panel and click on the “MySQL Databases” tool.

Enter a name in the Database name box and click on the Create button. We recommend you use mediawiki. The database name will be automatically prefixed with your hosting username, so you don’t have to worry about this database name being already used.

The database name can contain only regular letters, numbers and underscores.

The master MySQL user is the same as your hosting account Control Panel username, and it’s password is the same as the Control Panel password and this user has all rights to all databases you create. You can either use that user, or create your own.

The MySQL server address for CiviHosting is localhost.

These are the four items you will need to know in order to continue:

  1. Database name
  2. Username
  3. Password
  4. MySQL server address
