Defining a MySQL Database and adding one to my hosting package

MySQL is a popular choice of database for use in web applications and it is essential for popular CMS systems such as Wordpress and Magento to function.

Adding a MySQL Database within your Webspace

Make sure that you are on a package which supports the PHP scripting language and that you have a Database included with your service.

You can check your PHP compatibility and Database allocation by reviewing your package at claranetsoho.co.uk/clarahost. If necessary, our support team can make changes to your service to enable both PHP and MySQL databases.

To add a Database, go to the Databases section and provide a unique name and password:
