MySQL is one of the most widely used database administration systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information which are organized in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on within 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 ought to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its superb functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
