MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems on the market. A database is a collection of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and every time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its excellent functionality, convenience and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven application require some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
