MySQL is among the most widespread database administration systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with info which are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and each time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its excellent efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic Internet sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
