MySQL is one of the most popular database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information that are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software which links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven application need some form of database and some of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
