MySQL is among the most widespread database management systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with data that are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the information to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and each time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is really popular because of its superb functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some type of database and a number of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
