MySQL 5 Databases
Discover what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and apps.
MySQL is one of the most widespread database administration systems out there. A database is a set of cells with information which are structured in tables and the management system is the software which links the data to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so on in a database and every time a site visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be shown on a particular page. MySQL is extremely popular because of its excellent efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can function with a lot of popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, and so on. All dynamic web sites which are developed with a script-driven application need some kind of database and some of the most popular ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.
