A database is a collection of data organized by means of a database management system, such as MySQL or Postgres. Normally it is a set of interrelated tables that consist of columns (fields) and records. Databases allows you to manage large amounts of information over the web. They can be used to run web-based applications as well.

This module can be used to manage your databases. You may add, edit, delete the database, download its dump, create a list of users for a specific database and use other functions, if necessary.

Please note, that it may take much time to display the whole list due to great number of databases on your server and count of size of each database. In this case you should disable the size column by specifying the HideDbSize option in the control panel configuration file.
