      Forums are online again after a maintenance.   18/03/17

      MTA Forums maintenance is completed, although some automatic time-heavy tasks are still in process and will be finished eventually in background. Expect some features such as Forum Search to not display all results until all processes are finished. Please let us know if you spot a forum feature that worked correctly before the maintenance but does not work anymore now. Thanks. --MTA Team

I'm so new in scripting,So, MYSQL where you store informations, as the banking money accounts, AND FTP i think is where you put your ressources of your server.

FTP and MySQl are two completely different things.

FTP is a network protocol used for transfering files, hence the name File Transfer Protocol. So you use that to manage your server files.

MySQL is a database, you use that to store any data.

Just search google and you'll see. But it would be strange if a server hosting asked you to choose between FTP or MySQL, it makes no sense, they should provide both. You do need FTP to manage your server but you don't necessarily need MySQL.
