MySQL is one of the most popular database admin systems available. A database is a group of cells with data which are structured in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the info to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc within a database and every single time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is very popular due to its terrific efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can work with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
