Introduction

This article will guide you on how to manage MSSQL database users on a Plesk Windows server. Plesk is a widely used web hosting control panel that allows administrators to manage their websites, databases, email accounts, and more from a single, user-friendly interface.

Managing database users involves creating, modifying, or deleting users, and adjusting their permissions.

Accessing the Plesk Control Panel

To begin, log in to your Plesk control panel.

Once logged in, follow these steps:

  1. From the main menu, navigate to the 'Websites & Domains' tab.

  2. In the list of domains, locate and click on the website linked to the database you want to manage.

  3. Click on 'Databases'. This will open a list of all databases linked to your website.

  4. Find your target MSSQL database and click on its name to access the database settings.

Managing Database Users

After accessing your database, you can create, modify, or delete users:

Creating a User

  1. In the database settings, click on 'Add Database User'.

  2. Fill out the form with the new user's information, including username and password. Make sure to use strong, secure credentials.
