MySQL is one of the most widely used database administration systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its great efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites that are designed with a script-driven app require some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
