MySQL is among the most widely used database administration systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with data which are organized in tables and the management system is the software which links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its superb performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic web sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a number of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
