If you use a script-driven app for your site, any data which both you and the website users generate shall be stored within a database - an accumulation of data, that's organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software known as database management system and one of the most famous ones around the globe is MySQL. A number of script applications are built to work with MySQL as it's easy to work with, it functions very well on a hosting server and it is universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on several web server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP offered with our Linux cloud hosting will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases easily. It requires just a couple of mouse clicks to create a completely new database and with just one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your site, for instance. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to ensure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you'd like to see the database content or modify any cell or table through the CP, you may use phpMyAdmin, an effective 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 that you have picked automatically.
