MySQL is one of the most widespread database management systems available. A database is a group of cells with information which are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular because of its great performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven app require some kind of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
