All script apps such as forums or web shops store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the website data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it runs on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.

In the same way you can even change certain cells or tables within any of your databases. Creating a backup is equally simple and requires simply a click on the Backup button for a specific database. This function allows you to keep a copy of a site on your PC or to export the content of a given database, modify it on your end using appropriate software, and then import it back.
