MySQL is one of the most commonly used database admin systems available. A database is a collection of cells with data which are organized in tables and the administration system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth in a database and each time a visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a particular page. MySQL is quite popular because of its excellent performance, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic Internet sites which are designed with a script-driven app require some form of database and a lot of the most widely used ones like Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
