MySQL is one of the most commonly used database management systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info that are structured in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the data to a script application. For example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc inside a database and every time a visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which needs to be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is very popular because of its terrific efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can function with many popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and many of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
