MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with data which are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on in a database and every single time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be accessible on a specific page. MySQL is very popular due to its excellent functionality, simplicity and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites which are developed 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 use MySQL.
