MySQL is among the most widespread database administration systems out there. A database is a set of cells with information that are organized in tables and the administration system is the software that links the info to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on in a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its superb efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites that are built with a script-driven application need some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
