A front-end MySQL database viewing tool such as PHPMyAdmin is great for creation of databases and other database administration. If you are not familiar with the PHPMyAdmin, visit the site, download it and deploy it on your web server. It will save you time, greatly.
Assuming you now have PHPMyAdmin, login to the PHPMyAdmin system. There will be an option to create a new database on the main page, the "Databases" menu.
As an alternative, the command line to create a new database directly from the MySQL system is:
create database phplive;
