MySQL is among the most widely used database management systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with info that are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software that links the info to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and each time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular because of its superb efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can work with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are developed with a script-driven application need some type of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
