MySQL is one of the most widely used database management systems out there. A database is a set of cells with information which are arranged in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on in a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be shown on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its superb performance, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites which are designed with a script-driven app require some kind of database and a lot of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
