MySQL is one of the most popular database control systems available. A database is a collection of cells with information that are arranged in tables and the control system is the software that links the info to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on within a database and every time a site visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is very popular due to its great efficiency, convenience and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites which are built with a script-driven application require some kind of database and many of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
