MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info which are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the info to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts 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 ought to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its great functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can work with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones including Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
