How Can I Start with Your Hosting Service
This article will walk you through a typical SQLClusters journey in minutes. We also provide a video guide.
1.Create a MySQL application
With a registered Cloud Clusters account, you can deploy a MySQL instance in minutes. We offer a free trial for most applications we support. MySQL is on the free trial list. For detailed steps to create a MySQL application, please see Creating MySQL Deployment. To deploy a MySQL database, please log in to the control Panel and click the "order now."
2. Setting up MySQL application
After creating a MySQL application, you need to set it up by Creating Databases & users. Databases and users are prerequisites for connecting to and managing your MySQL deployment. By default, we create a root user to make it convenient for you to connect to MySQL. You can also connect to your MySQL database with a newly created user.
3. Connecting to MySQL
Once finishing the setup, you can connect to your MySQL. We have also put together an article about troubleshooting connection issues to help resolve possible connection issues. If you need further assistance, feel free to let us know.
