Create a MySQL for IU Sitehosting account or reset a root user password

Create the account

Important:
Before creating a MySQL account on IU Sitehosting, you must first create a group account and a IU Sitehosting account. See About IU computing accounts for groups or departments and About IU Sitehosting accounts.
  1. Go to Enterprise Web Technical Services and click the Manage your Sitehost account button. If prompted, log in with your IU username and passphrase.
  2. Find the account you want to add MySQL services to and click Manage.
  3. Read through the user agreement and agree to the terms.
  4. Your MySQL and MySQL-test accounts will then be created. Record the server names, root username, and passwords in a secured area, treating them as you would an IU passphrase.

Reset the root user password

  1. Go to Enterprise Web Technical Services and click the Manage your Sitehost account button.
  2. If prompted, log in with your IU username and passphrase.
  3. Find the account you want to reset the MySQL root user password for and click Manage.

  6. Read the confirmation warning carefully before proceeding further. Resetting a root user password cannot be undone.
  7. If you understand the warning, click the Continue button.
  8. Record the root account user and root password, and store this information in a secure location as you would an IU passphrase.
