Hi everyone,

Are there any ways to create a MySQL database on my VPS without using phpMyadmin or user interface?
I mean that I want to create database, username, password for db by commands on my console. Is it possible?

Give me any tips?

Create database and database user name
If you are going to install WordPress blog on your VPS, it is important to have a database to store your information. Now that we have installed MySQL on the VPS then, will now proceed to log into MySQL with the following command and enter the password in MySQL.
Code:
#mysql u root-p
At this point you should have been in the MySQL command, so you must use SQL language, on the screen, you will see your command are now starting the mysql> # as usual instead of your_server>_

For example, now you will create a database with the following information:
• Database Name: myblog
• Database User: myuser
• Database Password: mypass

And first, you will need to build a database name, and type.
Code:
CREATE DATABASE myblog;
and create a user database
Code:
CREATE [email protected] myuser;
Create a password for your new database
Code:
SET PASSWORD = PASSWORD FOR [email protected] ("mypass");
Assign database and database user name to work together, otherwise known as the database user granted access to the database you just created by follow this code.
Code:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON myblog.* Identified BY TO [email protected] 'mypass';
Refresh MySQL
Code:
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
And exit MySQL
Code:
exit
So, okay, now we've got a database with follow information and you can install your wordpress blog according to information
Code:
• Database Name: myblog
• Database User: myuser
• Database Password: mypass
Good luck!

Hello!

--- HOW TO CONNECT TO SERVER

You can do it from your console:
If your computer OS is Linux, you can connect to your server from Linux Terminal. In Windows, you need a software like Putty.

For linux users:

Open terminal and connect to your server:
You should login as root for the best experience with. So, ssh [email protected]

For windows users:

Login through Putty, by entering server (username and IP) details in Putty default window.

--- HOW TO INSTALL MYSQL

Now, if you don't have MySQL installed on your server, you can do it by running:

sudo yum install mysql-server
and
sudo /sbin/service mysqld start
--- HOW CREATE DATABASE AND USER

1. After installs completed, log into your MySQL database as root by typing:

2. Create a database:

CREATE DATABASE new_database_name_here;
3. Create an user and set password:

GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON new_database_name_here.* TO 'new_username_here'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY "new_database_password_here";
4. Flush privileges
flush privileges;
5. Exit MySQL:


If you have PHP installed on, you can connect to your db through PHP and then run same jobs.

Hello!

-- ROOT USERNAME

The root username is always "root" (without quotes).

-- CHANGE DEFAULT ROOT PASSWORD (from console)

Connect through Terminal or Putty exactly as I told above.

If you are using Ubuntu or Debian:
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
For CentOS, Fedora, and RHEL:
sudo /etc/init.d/mysqld stop
Start MySQL in safe mode
sudo mysqld_safe --skip-grant-tables &
Login (without password)
mysql -u root
Select the database
use mysql;
update user set password=PASSWORD("YOUR NEW PASSWORD HERE") where User='root';
flush privileges;
Exit
or
Restart MySQL
Ubuntu and Debian
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql stop
and
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start
CentOS, Fedora and RHEL
sudo /etc/init.d/mysqld stop
and
sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start
Now, you can try to login with the new password:

mysql -u root -p
(type the password when prompted)

Hope this helps!

@ TeoC NETCreator, an additional question:
Using mysql root password, can we login to PhpMyadmin for all mysql databases created before?

Yes this is one of the most easiest method to create a username and password for a database and then use it whenever needed. This code was very helpful.
