MySQL is among the most widespread database admin systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info that are organized in tables and the administration system is the piece of software which links the info to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in 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 should be displayed on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great efficiency, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites which are built with a script-driven app need some kind of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
