MySQL 5 Databases
Discover what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and apps.
MySQL is among the most commonly used database admin systems on the market. A database is a group of cells with info that are arranged in tables and the management system is the software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts etc in a database and every single time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that ought to be shown on a specific page. MySQL is extremely popular due to its superb functionality, ease of use and the fact that it can work with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic websites which are built with a script-driven application require some form of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
