Do DBMS apis like MySQL run as CGI?
Sincw i was told that for webserver apis in c or c++ its used the CGI, I was wondering if MySQL itself runs as a cgi.
But I wouldnt think so. As I've red, a cgi api executes only for 1 page load, it starts up and it ends wright after. I don think this happens with MySQL. Its like an independent server always activated.
So what is it actualy MySQL - from the application aspect?
Idea: Maybe they a CGI just transfers them the string, then gets back the array reply, and sends it back to httpserver as an html for. Mayne it is done this way?
