When you use a script-driven application for your website, any information which both you and the site users produce shall be stored in a database - an accumulation of info, which is structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out through special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones globally is MySQL. A number of script apps are built to work with MySQL as it's convenient to use, it performs exceptionally well on a server and it's universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on various server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla™ and Moodle.
MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting
The in-house built Hepsia CP included with our Linux cloud hosting
will permit you to take care of all your MySQL databases with ease. It takes only a couple of clicks to set up a completely new database and with only one more click you can back it up if you want to have a copy before you update your 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 can opt for the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you would like to view the database content or modify any cell or table from the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps shall also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
