Integration of MySQL and WordPress

MySQL is the world's most commonly used open source database management system. It is currently owned by Oracle Corporation. It is one of the most reliable and popular database management systems ever created. The name MySQL means "My" fplowed by "SQL".MySQL is a relational database management system, which means that it stores data in tables and allows you to query and manipulate that data. One of the most common uses of MySQL is to store information about web pages viewed by site visitors. It is also very popular in e-commerce applications where it is used to track sales of products and services.MySQL became an open source project in 2000 and was bought by Sun Microsystems in 2008. In 2010, Sun Microsystems was acquired by Oracle Corporation, who continue to develop the product.Microsoft, AOL, and Yahoo all use MySQL in their web services.Oracle also offers its own branded version of MySQL called Oracle Database Community Edition which can be downloaded from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/mysql-ce-downloads-198590.htmlAs well as being used for web pages, MySQL is also used for enterprise applications, big data analysis, and scientific applications. It has been used to support high traffic sites such as Facebook, WordPress.com, Twitter, Wikipedia and Craigslist.Its popularity means that there are a large number of ready made extensions available for it, so it can be adapted to meet your needs without much trouble.WordPress is a free and open source content management system (CMS. that is easy to use and freely available at http://wordpress.org/WP is primarily written in PHP, a scripting language that produces HTML code by interpreting instructions contained in a file with an .php extension.WordPress is used by over 60 million people worldwide and more than 20% of the web's top 10 million websites run WP for their blogging or content management needs.It is widely used for personal blogs but also used by news media outlets like CNN and Forbes for publishing articles onlineUnlike many other CMSs, WordPress doesn't require any technical knowledge to install or operate and it can even be installed on shared hosting accounts if you don't have access to a dedicated server.WordPress is licensed under the GPL license which means that developers are free to use it as part of another software package or application or modify it however they want. However, the GPL license does not allow them to sell their modified version without making the source code freely available. This makes it popular with developers because they can easily incorporate its features into their own applications but also ensures that the source code stays free and open for others to access and improve upon.In terms of functionality, WP is no match for some of the proprietary CMSs on the market but it does have a significant advantage over them – it is free!As a result, WP has been adopted by a lot of smaller organisations who may have been priced out of using other sputions by large setup fees or licensing costs.

Integration of MySQL and WordPress

As we will see later on, there are two ways that MySQL can be integrated with WordPress – through plugins and themes. This section will cover plugins only as themes are covered in another section further down this page.Plugin stands for "plugin" but it might mean something else too depending on your native language – maybe "plug-in", "add-on" or even "extension" depending on what country you're from! In WP speak, a plugin is either a piece of software that adds new functionality to WP or a theme that alters the appearance of WP. So some plugins work with WP itself while others work with templates (which we will look at next. Plugins are stored in the wp-content/plugins directory which is protected from ordinary users by default – you need to be logged in as an administrator to install or remove them. To do this, go to the admin area of your website and select Plugins in the navigation pane on the left hand side of the screen under Settings . This will take you to the Plugins page where you can activate, deactivate or delete plugins for your site. All plugins are listed on this page along with details about what they do and an option to install or uninstall them. If you are installing plugins from an external source, you will need to check the boxes next to each plugin before clicking the Install button at the bottom of the list – this will enable you to run all plugins listed before installing them individually. If you have multiple WordPress installations on your server, you will need to specify which installation you want to install each plugin into – otherwise they will all be installed into your default installation! The image below shows a list of different plugins with their status displayed as Active , Deactivated or Removed . A. Plugin Types There are three types of plugin. 1. Core . Core plugins are part of WP itself and cannot be uninstalled – they have to be disabled instead if you don't want them active on your site. You can find a list of core plugins here . 2. Installed . These are plugins that have already been installed on your site but might not be active yet – these are listed in alphabetical order below your active plugins. 3. Available . These are plugins that have not been installed yet but are available for download from The Plugin Directory at https://wordpress.org/plugins/search . From here you can search by keyword or browse plugins by category or tag . Once you find a plugin you are interested in downloading, click its Download link which will take you to a page with more detailed information about it including a description, author details, installation instructions, reviews and links to any documentation it might have. Plugin images will show a screenshot of what they do plus any user ratings or reviews left for them – these can be useful if you want to check whether anyone has had issues with a particular plugin before trying it out yourself. Clicking Install Now will download and install that plugin into your installation, making sure that any dependencies required by the plugin itself are also installed correctly. Once installed, plugins are available for selection from within the Plugins page at Admin > Plugins . A. Plugin Installation When you activate a plugin in your site's admin area then it will automatically be installed into your current installation unless you specify otherwise. By default, it will always be activated when you activate it so you will need to deactivate it first if you don't want it active until you've had time to test it out (see below. If you try activating a plugin while other plugins are active then WordPress will ask if you want to deactivate whichever plugins it thinks should be deactivated first so that the new plugin can be activated in its place – generally this isn't necessary unless one of those plugins is interfering with another plugin so its good practice to deactivate all other plugins first before activating any new ones as a safety measure against problems arising when switching between them. B. Plugin Deactivation To deactivate a plugin once its been activated , go to your site's admin area at Admin > Plugins and click on Deactivate on the line corresponding to the plugin in question (you might need to scrpl down to find it. This will display a popup message asking you whether you want to deactivate the plugin – click on Deactivate Plugin if this is what you want! Once activated, plugins cannot be deleted via your admin area - you need to deactivate them first by selecting Deactivate from within your admin area then fplow the instructions given on screen or displayed in the pop up box once you have clicked Deactivate Plugin . Once deactivated, you can delete them by going back into your admin area at Admin > Plugins and clicking Delete (you might need to scrpl down again. – make sure that Delete Plugin is ticked before clicking Apply ! Once deleted, there's no way back – so make sure you really want them gone before hitting Delete ! C. Plugin Updates Once installed, plugins can be updated at any time - just go back into your admin area at Admin > Plugins and click Update beside each individual plugin's entry in order to download the latest version of it (if available. Once done, click Update Plugins at the bottom of the page under Advanced Options . Generally speaking, WordPress will automatically update your plugins when updates become available but there are cases where this doesn't happen - generally if updates aren't compatible with other extensions installed on your site or if there are compatibility issues between different versions of WordPress itself! D. Plugin Management There are five main ways of managing plugins. 1. Activate / Deactivate . Activating / deactivating plugins can be done through your admin area at Admin > Plugins . 2. Deactivate All . You can deactivate all plugins at once through your admin area at Admin > Plug
