This guide will quickly go over creating a new database. This guide should apply to most hosting providers, the theme and icons might look different.

MySQL Database (Red Arrow) this is where you see all database created and be able to create database.

MySQL Database (Green Arrow) this is a quick way to create a new database and username to set for that database.

Step 1. Click on the Green Arrow.

Step 2. Set a name for the database. You would want to pick something that relates to your niche so you know what domain is using what database.

Step 3. You will also need to create a username to set access to the database which will be used to install the script.

Step 4. You must set “ALL PRIVILEGES” for the database/user and click Save.

That is all you need to do to create a new database. This database is ready to be used on a new install.

Installing the script will only take 2 steps. You need to open your browser and visit yourdomain.com (replace yourdomain.com with your website URL)

You just need to enter your new database information below. Where it says “localhost”, 99% of the times you will just leave that default text. Some hosting providers store your database on a different server. They will provide you with the Database server url that you will need to replace where it says “localhost”. First try “localhost” and if you are getting error messages and are 100% sure you entered the full Database name and the full database user with the correct password, then double check to make sure your database isn’t hosted on a different server URL.

The information you set below will be used to reset your stores control panel password. You will also set a username/password for your control panel admin section.

Once you have installed the script it will redirect you to the login page. It will normally be yourdomain.com/freshadmin

If you installed the script in a sub-folder, then it would be yourdomain.com/foldername/freshadmin

If you installed the script on a sub-domain, then it would be foldername.yourdomain.com/freshadmin

Once you have logged into your freshadmin control panel, click on Get Started and then Store Health. That is where you will be able to setup your Amazon API keys, tracking id and also make your store live when you are ready to go.
