All script apps like forums or virtual shops save their data in a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the site information like items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it functions on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud website hosting will enable you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It requires just a few clicks to create a new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You shall be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info. If you want to see the database content or modify any cell or table via the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script that you have chosen automatically.
