How to use databases with C++

What kind of program would I need to create a database which I could later use within my C++ program? It would be great if you guys could link me some good tutorials on that matter.
Actually I have never use a database library, so I can't actually recommend something, but top answer in first search result is worth investigating.
I used sqlapi++ when I did this. It was pretty straightforward and supports a plethora of popular databases.
