MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with information that are organized in tables and the administration system is the software that links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its terrific performance, convenience and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites that are built with a script-driven application need some form of database and a number of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
