How can I locate my MySQL database details?

If you're creating a website that requires a database, you may need to check the database details or review your database information. You can simply get this information at MySQL databases section in Control Panel of your hosting account:


After entering MySQL databases, there are 4 sections that contain important information about your MySQL databases: 

  • MySQL database - Database name
  • MySQL user - User name
  • MySQL host - Host name (please note that we don't use localhost for hostname)
  • Password - Password of MySQL's user (in case you forgot it, you can reset it here)

By the way, you can get into your database by clicking on "phpMyAdmin".
