All script applications including forums or online shops store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it operates on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing performance even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.

It takes just a few clicks to set up a completely new database and with one more click you could back it up if you would like to have a copy before you update your Internet site, for example. You will be able to modify the password, delete a database or allow 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 won't be able to access your data. If you'd like to see the database content or change any cell or table from the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, an excellent web-based interface. Using any one of our script-driven applications will also be super easy as our script installer will set up a database for the script which you have picked out automatically.
