MySQL is among the most widely used database management systems available. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the control system is the software that links the information to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and each time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its excellent functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven app require some type of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
