Description

This function creates a MySQL® database.

Warning:

cPanel API 1 is deprecated. Do not use this function. Instead, we strongly recommend that you use the following newer functions:

Examples


 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
$add_db = $cpanel->api1('Mysql','adddb', array('database') ); // Call the function.


Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 LiveAPI Perl Module
my $cpliveapi = Cpanel::LiveAPI->new(); # Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
my $add_db = $cpliveapi->api1('Mysql','adddb', ['database'] ); # Call the function.


Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


Warning:

In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We provide this example to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI system. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs.

<cpanel Module="Mysql::adddb( $FORM('dbname'))">
 Command Line

Notes:

  • You must URI-encode these values.
  • username represents your account-level username.
  • For more information and additional output options, read our Guide to cPanel API 1 documentation or run the cpapi1 --help command.
  • If you run CloudLinux™, you must use the full path of the cpapi1 command:

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/cpapi1

 Output (none)

Parameters

ParameterTypeDescriptionPossible valuesExample
dbnamestring

Required

The MySQL database name.

A valid database name.

If database prefixing is enabled and this parameter does not begin with the prefix, the function will automatically add it.

Warning

The maximum length of the database name is 64 characters. However, due to the method that cPanel & WHM uses to store MySQL database names, each underscore character requires two characters of that limit. Therefore, if you enable database prefixing, the maximum length of the database name is 63 characters, which includes both the database prefix and the underscore character. Each additional underscore requires another two characters of that limit.

If the total length of the username is longer than the character limit for database usernames, the function will fail.

database

Returns

This function does not return output.
