MySQL is among the most popular database management systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with information which are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the info to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within 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 needs to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its excellent functionality, convenience and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites that are built with a script-driven app need some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones including Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
