MySQL is one of the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info that are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which ought to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its terrific efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites that are designed with a script-driven application need some form of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
