MySQL 5 Databases
Learn what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and applications.
MySQL is among the most commonly used database management systems available. A database is a collection of cells with info that are structured in tables and the management system is the piece of software that links the information to a script application. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth within a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that has to be accessible on a certain page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its great functionality, convenience and the fact that it can operate with a lot of popular scripting languages like PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic web sites which are designed with a script-driven application require some kind of database and many of the most widely used ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
