Database Overview

If your website incorporates custom data processing applications or is designed to generate web pages dynamically, you will probably need a database for storing and retrieving data.

In the ACSP Cloud Panel, you can do the following:

  • Manually create a database for your site.
  • Make a database copy.
  • Manage database user accounts and set up access rules.
  • View connection information (host name, database name, username).
  • Check a database for issues and repair the database.
  • Export and import database dumps or backup databases as part of a subscription backup.
  • Move a database to another subscription.
  • Link a database to one of websites on your subscription.
  • Manage data with external database management tools, such as phpMyAdmin.

These operations are available in Websites & Domains tab > Databases.

Active and Classic Lists

By default, the list of databases is displayed in the Active List view mode. To switch to the Classic List mode, use the icon next to the search box. The main difference between the modes is that in the Active List mode you can view statistics on the database and the name of the website to which the database is assigned.

Database Management Tools

With the third-party database management tools supplied with ACSP Cloud Panel, you can edit tables in databases, export and import data, and run SQL queries. These tools are available under the corresponding link in Websites & Domains tab > Databases

Automatic Creation of Databases

When you install an app from the Application Catalog, all required databases and database user accounts are created automatically. Alternatively, you can assign a manually created user account to a database created by a web app. For more information, see the section Web Applications > App Databases.
