MySQL 5 Databases
Learn what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and apps.
MySQL is one of the most commonly used database management systems available. A database is a set of cells with data that are organized in tables and the control system is the software which links the information to a script application. For instance, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and every single time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is really popular due to its excellent performance, simplicity and the fact that it can function with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic web sites which are developed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and a number of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
