Databases Management

Within Plesk there is the ability to create multiple databases as well as multiple users within each database. Also, directly accessible via Plesk, is the link to DB WebAdmin - a web-based administration tool, allowing you to sort, edit, and create tables within a given database. Database limits are set through domain preferences and database disk usage is calculated within the domain's total allotted disk space.

Creating a New Database

  1. At the Domain administration page, click the Databases button. The Databases Management page appears.

  2. To add a new database select the Database name field, enter the desired name, select the type from the drop-down list and click Add. The Database Editing page appears.

  3. To add database users to the newly created database, click Add. The Database Users Management page appears.

  4. Enter the user name into Database user name text box, specify a password in the New Password text box, and then enter it again in the Confirm Password text box. Select Update to complete the creation of the new user. Selecting Up will ignore all entries and return to the Database Editing page making no changes.

  5. Once you have completed the creation of the new database and its users click Up to return to the Database Management page.

Searching in the List of Databases

Plesk allows you to search in the Databases for a certain pattern. It may help you in case you have a great number of databases in the system and you need to work with a particular one. To search in the databases:

  1. Select the input field next to the Search button and type in a pattern string.

  2. Click Search.

  3. If there were any items found matching the pattern string entered, they will all be displayed in the form of reduced list.

  4. The button Show All will revert to displaying the whole list of databases.

There is also another way to ease the process of working with a large list of databases. An option of sorting the list by several various parameters is made available to you. You can sort databases by Type and Database Name. To sort the list by a certain parameter in ascending or descending order, click on the name of the parameter in the column heading. An arrow will appear indicating the order of sorting: down for descending order, up for ascending.
