MySQL is one of the most widely used database administration systems available. A database is a collection of cells with data that are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the information to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and every single time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is very popular because of its superb efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven application require some type of database and some of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Website Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP that comes with our Linux cloud website hosting will permit you to control all your MySQL databases effortlessly. It takes just a couple of clicks to set up a completely new database and with one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick 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 information. If you'd like to view the database content or edit any cell or table from the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
