MySQL is one of the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a set of cells with data that are arranged in tables and the administration system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its great efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites that are designed with a script-driven app need some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.

If you'd like to view the database content or change any cell or table via the CP, you should use phpMyAdmin, a powerful web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven apps shall also be quite simple as our script installer will set up a database for the script you have picked automatically.
