MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with data which are structured in tables and the control system is the software that links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular because of its terrific functionality, convenience and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites which are designed with a script-driven application need some form of database and a number of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
