MySQL is one of the most widely used database administration systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its great performance, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites that are designed with a script-driven app require some kind of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
