MySQL 5 Databases
Find out what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your web sites and applications.
MySQL is among the most popular database control systems out there. A database is a set of cells with info which are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the data to a script app. For example, a forum stores all usernames, avatars, posts and so forth inside a database and each time a visitor opens a particular thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be shown on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its great functionality, simplicity of use and the fact that it can operate with many popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etc. All dynamic sites that are built with a script-driven app require some kind of database and a lot of the most widely used ones such as Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
