MySQL is among the most commonly used database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information that are arranged in tables and the management system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its great efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages such as 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 like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
