MySQL is among the most widespread database administration systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with data which are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is really popular because of its superb efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
