  • You have to create it. Most likely you will need to create the database in your webhost’s control panel of some sort. If you don’t know how to do it, ask your host.


    Now this may be a stupid question but i have no idea on what to name the database. How do you name your database appropriately? Should it describe the content? After checking with the web hosting company, they said that i can only create 1 database. I’m really new to this wordpress thingy and i dont see any tutorial that explains what you should name databases created for wordpress. All of them just show you how to create the database.

    Thanking you in advance for all you thoughts and views,

    you name it whatever you want. its not described anywhere because it doesnt matter. youre overthinking things.

    Do I name the database/username/password whatever i want? B/c that doesn’t seem to work – it’s telling me my info is wrong. Where do I get that info? I tried my info from my host (web address/login/pword), but that didn’t work either.

    Thanks for your help!
