MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the management system is the software which links the data to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites which are developed with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
