MySQL Query Browser is an excellent (and FREE) GUI tool for managing your MySQL databases. In order to create a new database, follow the steps below.
1. Open MySQL Query Browser. You will be presented with the login screen. Fill in the appropriate information and click
2. You may be presented with the following dialog box about the default schema (i.e. database). Personally because I’m working with so many databases, I don’t set a default schema. So I check the box to not show the message again and then I click
3. Once you are in query browser, go to the right colum where you will see the list of exisiting schema. Right-click and select
Create New Schema or just use the shortcut
4. In the box that appears type the name of the new database. In this example I was working with a test install of Joomla so I named the database Joomla. Click
OK and that’s it.
