MySQL is one of the most popular database administration systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with information that are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular because of its terrific efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites that are developed with a script-driven app need some type of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
