MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems out there. A database is a set of cells with data which are organized in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is really popular because of its excellent performance, simplicity and the fact that it can operate with lots of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic web sites which are designed with a script-driven application require some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
