MySQL 5 Databases
Find out what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and applications.
All script applications such as forums or virtual stores save their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it operates on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with big databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
