MySQL is among the most commonly used database management systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information which are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every single time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which ought to be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its superb performance, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some form of database and many of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
