MySQL is among the most widely used database administration systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information that are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts 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 certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its great performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites which are built with a script-driven app need some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
