     3BOINC stores information in a MySQL database. The main tables are:
     4
     5 platform ::
     6        Compilation targets of the core client and/or applications.
     7 app::
     8        Applications. The core client is treated as an application; its name is 'core_client'.
     9 app_version::
     10        Versions of applications. Each record includes a URL for downloading the executable, and the MD5 checksum of the executable.
     11 user::
     12        Describes users, including their email address, name, web password, and authenticator.
     13 host::
     14        Describes hosts.
     15 workunit::
     16        Describes workunits. The input file descriptions are stored in an XML document in a blob field. Includes counts of the number of results linked to this workunit, and the numbers that have been sent, that have succeeded, and that have failed.
     17 result::
     18        Describes results. Includes a 'state' (whether the result has been dispatched). Stores a number of items relevant only after the result has been returned: CPU time, exit status, and validation status.

     20The database is created by the [MakeProject make_project] script. Normally you don't have to directly examine or manipulate the database. If you need to, you can use the MySQL command-line interpreter or BOINC's [HtmlOps administrative web interface].
