When you use a script-driven application for your website, any information that both you and the website users create shall be stored in a database - a collection of information, that is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones around the globe is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are created to work with MySQL since it’s easy to use, it performs perfectly on a website hosting server and it is universal as it can perform with widely used web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a number of hosting server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones for example Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
MySQL 5 Databases in Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux web hosting allows you to control all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few clicks to set up a brand new database and with one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for example. You will be able to change the password, remove a database or enable 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 to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you'd like to view the database content or change any cell or table using the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be super easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have picked out automatically.
