MySQL is among the most widespread database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script app. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and every 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 particular page. MySQL is really popular due to its superb functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven application require some form of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
