MySQL is one of the most widespread database management systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the management system is the piece of software which links the data to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and every single time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular because of its excellent functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and a number of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
