MySQL is one of the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with info that are structured in tables and the control system is the software that links the info to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular due to its terrific performance, ease of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven application require some kind of database and a lot of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
