MySQL is among the most widely used database admin systems in existence. A database is a set of cells with info which are structured in tables and the administration system is the software that links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be shown on a particular page. MySQL is really popular because of its great functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites that are designed with a script-driven app require some form of database and some of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
