MySQL is among the most popular database administration systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with info which are arranged in tables and the administration system is the software which links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its terrific efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven app require some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

MySQL 5 Databases in Cloud Hosting

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our Linux cloud packages allows you to control all your MySQL databases easily. It requires only a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with one more click you can back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for instance. You'll be able to modify the password, delete a database or enable remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you can pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your data. If you'd like to see the database content or change any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked automatically.
