MySQL is one of the most commonly used database administration systems available. A database is a collection of cells with data which are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent functionality, convenience and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites that are designed with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

The in-house built Hepsia Control Panel included with our Linux cloud hosting will enable you to manage all your MySQL databases easily. It requires only a couple of clicks to create a brand new database and with only one more click you could back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your web site, for example. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely so as to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your info. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table from the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps will also be very easy as our script installer will create a database for the script which you have chosen automatically.
