MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems available. A database is a collection of cells with info which are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and every time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its terrific performance, convenience and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites that are designed with a script-driven app need some type of database and a number of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
