MySQL is among the most commonly used database admin systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the management system is the software that links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on within a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its superb functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites which are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
