MySQL is among the most commonly used database control systems available. A database is a collection of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the administration system is the software that links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on within a database and every time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its superb efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can work with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites which are developed with a script-driven app need some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
