Summary of this Tutorial:

WordPress uses PHP to store and read databases.

You can log in to your phpMyAdmin through cpanel from your hosting provider.

From here you can see the tables that make up WordPress

In this area you can create a backup of your database by exporting it.

Using the custom export you can choose the tables to pick and create the zipped impression file for your database.

You also have the ability to optimize your tables to make them run smoother.

    I did a wordpress install using a one click install through cpanel but I didn't create a database, how is my site still working and can I create and link one now?

    thanks for the video. I made a mistake when transferring a wordpress site from my dev server to the live server. When I try to log on it tells me

    The file 'wp-config.php' already exists. If you need to reset any of the configuration items in this file, please delete it first. You may try installing now.

    Then it takes me to a page that says

    Already Installed
    You appear to have already installed WordPress. To reinstall please clear your old database tables first.

    I am not sure what to do.
