MySQL is among the most commonly used database admin systems in existence. A database is a collection of cells with info which are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the information to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc inside a database and each time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its superb performance, simplicity and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites that are developed with a script-driven app need some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
