  1. Database Name is the name given to the database, this is required when configuring your application to connect to MySQL. For example, mydatabase, database1 etc

  2. Database User is the user which is used to authenticate access to the database. For example, dbuser, user1 etc

  3. Database Password is the password which is used to authenticate access to the database. We recommend setting a strong password here.

Click on "Create Database" and done! Your database has been created now.
