MySQL is among the most widely used database administration systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with data which are structured in tables and the administration system is the software that links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and every single time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its terrific performance, simplicity and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites that are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and a number of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
