MySQL is among the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information which are organized in tables and the administration system is the software that links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is really popular due to its great functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
