MySQL is among the most commonly used database control systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software which links the data to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within 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 has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its terrific efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites which are built with a script-driven app require some form of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
