MySQL is one of the most widespread database administration systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the management system is the software which links the information to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular due to its excellent efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites which are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and many of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.

It takes just a couple of clicks to create a brand new database and with one more click you can back it up if you'd like to have a copy before you update your website, for example. You'll be able to modify the password, remove a database or allow remote access to it just as fast. For the latter option you can choose the IP addresses that'll be able to connect to the database remotely in order to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your information. If you want to view the database content or modify any cell or table via the Control Panel, you should use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface.
