MySQL is among the most widespread database administration systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with information that are structured in tables and the control system is the software that links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every single time a site visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great performance, ease of use and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven app need some kind of database and a lot of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
