If you are installing WordPress manually, you may want to create a MySQL database and user account manually. In this post, we are going to show you how can you create a database using cPanel.
How To Create a Database Using cPanel

Your server will create a new database for you.

Successfully created the user!
Now comes the main part. We have created a database and a user. Now, add the user to the database.
You will need to choose the privileges. Select all of them and update the settings.
You can see the user is assigned to your newly created database.
You can use this database for storing your website data.
