MySQL is among the most popular database administration systems out there. A database is a set of cells with information 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 and so forth within a database and each time a site visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular because of its excellent performance, simplicity and the fact that it can work with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
