MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with data which are organized in tables and the administration system is the software that links the info to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and every single time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular due to its excellent performance, convenience and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some type of database and a number of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
