MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the management system is the software that links the information to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is really popular due to its excellent efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some type of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
