MySQL is among the most widely used database administration systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the management system is the software which links the data to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its superb efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven app require some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
