MySQL is one of the most widely used database admin systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with info which are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc 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 displayed on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular due to its terrific efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic Internet sites that are built with a script-driven app require some type of database and many of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
