MySQL is among the most commonly used database admin systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with info which are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software which links the data to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on inside a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular due to its excellent performance, ease of use and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic sites that are built with a script-driven app need some type of database and some of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
