Today we’re proud to show you the newest update to the WebFaction control panel. We’ve upgraded the way you create and manage MySQL and PostgreSQL databases and users, as a part of our ongoing effort to make the control panel easier to use. We’ve made this two-minute video to show off how the new interface works:
The new databases interface is more flexible when it comes to creating databases and determining who can access them. In the past, database names were required to begin with your username and an underscore. The new databases interface throws that requirement out the window. Starting today, you can name your databases as you please. Perhaps more importantly, now you can grant a single user access to multiple databases, and more than one user may be granted access to any one database.
In addition to the video, we’ve updated our documentation to reflect the latest changes to the control panel. Let us know what you think in the comments and if you run into any problems, join us in the Q&A Community.
