MySQL is one of the most widespread database management systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software which links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is very popular because of its terrific functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
