MySQL is one of the most widely used database control systems in existence. A database is a group of cells with information that are arranged in tables and the control system is the software that links the data to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth within a database and every time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its superb efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites that are designed with a script-driven app require some type of database and some of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
