This demo assumes you've already logged in to Plesk.

Now let's learn how to setup a database.

Click the "Databases" option here on the right.

If your website uses custom data processing apps or is designed to generate web pages dynamically, you'll likely need a database for storing and retrieving data.

To create a database, click "Add New Database".

Give the database a name, and select the database type.

Next create a user for the database, which is how Plesk will access the database.

When ready, click "OK".

That's it! The new database has been created and is ready for use.

To manage the database from within Plesk, click the "Webadmin" link.

This is where you would go to manage your database.

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to setup a database in Plesk.
