MySQL is among the most widespread database management systems out there. A database is a group of cells with info that are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on within a database and every single time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is very popular because of its terrific efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and many of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
