MySQL is among the most commonly used database administration systems out there. A database is a group of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software that links the data to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and each time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which has to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is really popular due to its superb performance, ease of use and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven application require some type of database and a number of the most popular ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
