All script apps like forums or online shops save their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the site information like items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it functions on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great performance even with big databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.

It takes just a couple of mouse clicks to set up 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 site, for instance. You'll be able to change the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to opt for the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to make sure that unauthorized people won't be able to access your information. If you wish to see the database content or edit any cell or table through the Control Panel, you can use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps shall also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have selected automatically.
