MySQL is one of the most widely used database management systems out there. A database is a set of cells with information that are structured in tables and the management system is the software which links the information to a script application. As an illustration, 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 that should be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is really popular because of its great efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven app require some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
