MySQL 5 Databases
Why does almost every single web site nowadays employ MySQL databases? How do the latter work?
When you use a script-driven app for your site, any info that both you and the site users produce will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of info, which is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it is easy to use, it works really well on a hosting server and it's also universal as it can function with common web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on a number of web server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones such as Moodle, Joomla™ and WordPress.
