MySQL is among the most popular database control systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info that are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the data to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which ought to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its great efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic web sites that are designed with a script-driven application need some form of database and many of the most popular ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
