MySQL is among the most popular database management systems available. A database is a group of cells with info that are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and every time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is really popular due to its excellent performance, simplicity and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
