MySQL 5 Databases
Why does almost every Internet site today employ MySQL databases? How do the latter work?
MySQL is among the most commonly used database control systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with data that are organized in tables and the management system is the software which links the info to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and every single time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which ought to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular because of its terrific performance, convenience and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven app need some kind of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Web Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux cloud web hosting
allows you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It takes only a few clicks to create a brand new database and with one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or enable remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you could choose the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your data. If you would like to see the database content or edit any cell or table via the CP, you can use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have chosen automatically.
