MySQL is one of the most widespread database admin systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information which are structured in tables and the administration system is the software that links the data to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and each time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven app require some form of database and a number of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
