MySQL is one of the most popular database management systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with data that are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every single time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that needs to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its superb performance, simplicity and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic Internet sites which are designed with a script-driven application need some kind of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
