MySQL is among the most widespread database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the management system is the software which links the data to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth inside a database and every single time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which ought to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its terrific efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven application require some form of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
