MySQL 5 Databases
Why does almost every Internet site nowadays employ MySQL databases? How do the aforementioned work?
If you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any data that both you and the site users create shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of data, which is organized in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done by employing special software referred to as database management system and one of the most well-known ones globally is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are created to work with MySQL because it is convenient to use, it functions perfectly on a hosting server and it's also universal as it can function with well-known web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a variety of web server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including extremely popular ones such as Moodle, Joomla™ and WordPress.
