All script applications including forums or e-shops keep their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the website information such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software that 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 frequently used because it functions on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with big databases. Many widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.

For the latter option you may pick the IP addresses that will be able to connect to the database remotely to ensure that unauthorized people shall not be able to access your information. If you would like to see the database content or change any cell or table via the Control Panel, you may use phpMyAdmin, an effective web-based interface. Using any of our script-driven applications shall also be easy as our script installer will create a database for the script that you have selected automatically.
