Introduction to MySQL databases

We provide support for MySQL databases on several packages. The Database Manager is a web based MySQL client that allows you to create and manipulate a maximum of two MySQL databases. Database Manager is designed for advanced users. Knowledge of relational databases and SQL is required in order to use this Database Manager efficiently.


Database Manager builds SQL statements from the various options that you select with the "Build SQL Query" button.  After you build a query, you can review it before running the query.  It is located just above the "Run SQL Query" button. Clicking the "Run SQL Query" button submits the query to the SQL server. More information on using Database Manager to create databases and tables is available in the WebsiteOS help, accessible through the WebsiteOS.


MySQL databases can be accessed through web pages using CGI, ColdFusion and PHP.  ColdFusion requires a Data Source Name (DSN).
