When you use a script-driven app for your website, any info which both you and the site users create shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, which is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software called database management system and one of the most famous ones globally is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are built to work with MySQL because it’s user-friendly, it works exceptionally well on a server and it is universal as it can perform with popular web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on a number of server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are loads of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux cloud hosting packages will enable you to control all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a few mouse clicks to set up a brand new database and with just one more click you may back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you could pick the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your info. If you'd like to see the database content or modify any cell or table through the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an efficient web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications shall also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have selected automatically.
