MySQL is among the most commonly used database administration systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info that are structured in tables and the management system is the piece of software which links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its great efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some type of database and a number of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
