Hi,

Could you help:

I have cPanel username and password. No user or database names.

Need to remotely (from my server) upload & install Wordpress database to that cPanel host.

Thank you.

If you have cPanel > PHPMyAdmin, you can import a database there into one that already exists. So, you can go to cPanel > MySQL databases area, create the database, create the database user, add the database user to the database, then go to cPanel > PHPMyAdmin and import the database there (usually, an .sql file is what you'd be importing).

If this is a new WordPress install, you don't need to import the database either. A new WordPress installation (not a pre-existing one being moved) would simply create the database during WordPress install.

Thanks for replies, but I need to create those databases remotely, without login into cPanel.

I am working at a kind of a service where users will enter their cPanel/ FTP credentials at our website and I should develop a solution to install WordPress to their servers only with cPanel/ FTP access details.
