MySQL is among the most popular database management systems available. A database is a set of cells with data which are organized in tables and the administration system is the software which links the data to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its great efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites that are designed with a script-driven app require some type of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
