All script applications including forums or e-stores save their info within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with huge databases. Lots of famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.

In the same way you may also edit specific cells or tables within any of your databases. Creating a backup is equally uncomplicated and requires just a mouse click on the Backup button for a particular database. This feature will enable you to keep a copy of a website on your PC or to export the content of a particular database, edit it on your end using some software, and then import it back.
