MySQL is one of the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information that are organized in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and every single time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites that are built with a script-driven application require some type of database and a lot of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
