Host Your Mysql Database In Optimal Conditions At Certified Hosting12/06/2011
Static pages are a thing of the past, a time when the Web was far less dynamic and engaging. Today, users expect interactivity from every online presence and typically stay away from websites that do not offer visitors the opportunity to participate. Thankfully, modern web technologies make it fairly easy to add interactive elements to a website, including comments, user accounts, and custom settings.
Dynamic web presences would not be possible without a way to store data and seamlessly deliver it to users. For most websites, this requires a database. The concept of database may intimidate novice users, so Certified Hosting has prepared a quick primer that covers the basics of MySQL, the most popular database management system. The What Is MySQL and the Important Things You Should Know About MySQL article is a must read if you want to start working with MySQL databases or if you just need to get back up to speed with MySQL hosting.
In What Is MySQL and the Important Things You Should Know About MySQL, Certified Hosting shows why it’s important to know the basics of MySQL, even if you’re not a technical person.
No matter if you’re using a third party application such as WordPress or Joomla or have your own custom website, eventually you will be forced to get acquainted with MySQL or some other SQL implementation. Errors related to databases are quite frequent, from duplicate entries in a user table, to faulty encoding that causes text to be displayed incorrectly.
And even if you don’t encounter problems with your MySQL host, from time to time, you may be forced to have a look inside your database. For example, a common scenario that requires direct database investigation is debugging a web application that doesn’t display information correctly. A quick check inside the database can help you determine where the problem originates.
Because MySQL doesn’t offer a graphical interface by default, you will need a third party visual interface such as phpMyAdmin to facilitate working with the database. Before opting for a MySQL web hosting plan, make sure to check what tools are made available to you by the hosting provider.
