This document explains how to create a PlanetScale Database using the PlanetScale console.
Before you can create a PlanetScale Database, you must first create a cluster.
To create a PlanetScale Database, you will complete the following steps:
When you create a new cluster, this page opens automatically. Otherwise, log in to the PlanetScale console.
Click on the name of the cluster where your database will run. This will open the overview for the cluster.
In the cluster overview, click the Create Database button.
This opens the Create New Database pane.
In the Create New Database pane, enter the name of your new database.
Database names can only contain lowercase alphanumeric characters.
In the Create New Database pane, select a region from the Regions dropdown. You can choose from the regions that you selected for the cluster where this database will run.
