In my cPanel I have at least three options for creating a database - phpMyAdmin, MySQL Databases and MySQL Database Wizard, but which should I use or doesn't it make any difference which one.

Doesn't matter. I would use the cpanel mysql database area normally.

If you are unfamiliar with the process of creating a Db then try: MySQL Database Wizard.


Okay, thank you both very much. :)  I'm new to this admittedly so will prob use the wizard option.

It's not really that hard with the manual options too ;).

He, he!:)  Probably not but I've used the wizard already, and I'm finding the SMF online manual easy to understand in general so hat-off to the admins!
