MySQL is one of the most commonly used database administration systems available. A database is a collection of cells with data that are structured in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on in a database and each time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its great efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven app need some type of database and a lot of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
