MySQL is one of the most widely used database management systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with data that are organized in tables and the management system is the software that links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and each time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its great performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic web sites that are designed with a script-driven app need some type of database and a number of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
