I'm not sure how to ask this and I'll probably sound a little stupid, but bear with me.
How does a "membership" website store member data? Is it done with a database? Does it store the information in a flat file as pages that can be edited later?
I see places advertise "all in one" membership software, but I'm trying to figure out how it works. I know some places have a back end database, but what about a member site only expecting a couple hundred members?
