MySQL is one of the most widespread database control systems available. A database is a group of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script app. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so forth within 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 needs to be accessible on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its terrific efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can work with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic Internet sites that are developed with a script-driven app need some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones including Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
