    cPanel is a file based software and not a DB based. cPanel does not need any MySql DB to work.

    Thanks for your answer!
    But I think there's a mistake in my expression. I mean there's a mysql database manager in the cpanel. and we can create databases and users at there. To do this it need a admin account. is this account the same as the cpanel account?

    Go on, have a guess
    You have to use the cPanel front-end to create a MySQL database.
