Mapping a database to an account in WHM

Written by: on 29 September 2020 12:09 PM 29 September 2020 12:09 PM

In WHM you may want to map a database that has been imported manually via an SQL dump or another method to an existing cPanel user.

To do that you need to:

1. Find the database name or names (for multiple databases):

  • Login to WHM
  • Go to 'Terminal' and type:
  • mysql -e "show databases;" grep dbname
  • (where dbname is a partial name for the database)

2. In WHM go to the Database Map Tool

  • Choose cpanel username there and add mapping databases (comma separated if there are more than one)
