MySQL is one of the most widespread database control systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the control system is the software that links the information to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and every single time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its excellent functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites that are designed with a script-driven application require some type of database and some of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
