  • now on the same page you should find a section called “MySQL Users” , create a user there and make sure that you have a strong password
  • now once the you are done creating the database and the user its time to connect them together, on the same page find the section “Add a User to a Database” select the database and the user then press “add
  • Select all privileges , and click “Make Change” button
