MySQL is one of the most popular database management systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with information that are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and each time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which ought to be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is quite popular because of its great performance, convenience and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven app require some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
