What is Database Mapping?

Database Mapping (DB Mapping) is the process by which cPanel & WHM maps the relationship between cPanel accounts and their database user, database virtual users, and databases. The DB Mapping code is responsible for Database Prefixing and assists with Account Transfer mechanisms.

Benefits of Database Mapping

The benefits of DB Mapping revolve around two key points:
• Account-database relationships are preserved when transferred from non-cPanel accounts.
• Database usernames can be the optimal length.

DB Mapping is available in all builds of cPanel & WHM 11.28 and later.
