MySQL is among the most widely used database admin systems out there. A database is a group of cells with information which are arranged in tables and the management system is the piece of software which links the data to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth in a database and every single time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its terrific performance, simplicity and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven application require some kind of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
