MySQL is one of the most widely used database management systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with information which are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the information to a script app. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and every time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its excellent functionality, convenience and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. 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 use MySQL.
