After you have created your TNG database, you should create a database user for the TNG connection, so that you do not have to use your hosting service account Username and password for the TNG database connection.

Creating a database user provides an extra level of security.


The following example is using the Database Manager on ICDSoft hosting service.

  • Select the database
  • Enter the database username
  • Enter the password for the username
  • Confirm the password
  • Click the Add button
Create Database User

Once the new database user has been added, you can see that you now have a different username associated to the database besides your hosting service account username, which might be shown as the Master User for the created database.
