MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems available. A database is a group of cells with info which are organized in tables and the management system is the software that links the info to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth in a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is very popular because of its superb functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic web sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
