All script applications including forums or e-shops keep their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the site information including items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it operates on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with large databases. Lots of widely used platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
MySQL 5 Databases in Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux hosting packages
will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases without difficulty. It takes just a couple of mouse clicks to set up a new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You shall be able to change the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you want to view the database content or edit any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked automatically.
