MySQL is one of the most widely used database control systems available. A database is a collection of cells with information that are organized in tables and the control system is the software that links the info to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc within a database and every single time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its terrific efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic web sites which are built with a script-driven application need some kind of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
