How to create and administer a database at Hipex?

At Hipex it takes hardly any effort to create and manage a new database. In just a few clicks you may also add and edit database users or permit users access to another database.

In this article we explain how you can do this at Hipex. We assume you are logged into the Pack panel.

Create database in the Pack panel

Let us start by creating a database in the Pack panel.

Go to databases and select the server to which you want to add the database: Select server

By clicking the "add database" button a popup appears in which you can create the new database. Fill in the fields with your data and add the database. Add_database_pack

It may take a few minutes for the database to be added to the server.

The current status is shown in the activities log.

Using the commandline

As soon as the activities log reports the database is successfully created, it is ready to use.
