MySQL is one of the most widespread database management systems available. A database is a group of cells with information that are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its terrific functionality, convenience and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic web sites which are designed with a script-driven app require some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
