Starting with the now defunct flexinode module, and later the CCK and Views modules, major functions of Drupal-based websites are handled through the database. When a developer is working on a development non-live version of a Drupal website; an administrator is unable to copy over the database to a live server. On heavily trafficked websites with lots of content, it's impossible to simply overwrite the database since the content added to the live database after the database is copied to the development server will be removed.
