MySQL is one of the most widespread database administration systems available. A database is a collection of cells with information which are organized in tables and the management system is the software that links the info to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its terrific performance, ease of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven app need some type of database and a lot of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
