MySQL is among the most widespread database management systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software which links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its superb performance, convenience and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven application need some type of database and a number of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
