MySQL is one of the most popular database admin systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with data that are structured in tables and the administration system is the software which links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent performance, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites that are developed with a script-driven application need some form of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
