MySQL is one of the most widely used database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with information that are organized in tables and the management system is the software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc 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 ought to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular due to its great performance, ease of use and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites that are designed with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
