MySQL is one of the most commonly used database admin systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with data which are structured in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and every single time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular because of its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites which are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and many of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
