MySQL is one of the most commonly used database control systems on the market. A database is a set of cells with data which are structured in tables and the control system is the software which links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc within a database and every time a website visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is very popular due to its great efficiency, ease of use and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic Internet sites which are built with a script-driven app need some form of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress use MySQL.
