MySQL 5 Databases
Discover what relational databases are and whether using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your websites and apps.
All script apps like forums or web stores keep their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to keep their content.
