MySQL is one of the most widespread database control systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with information which are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and every single time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular due to its terrific functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are designed with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
