About MySQL

The MySQL relational database has become the world's most popular open source database because of its consistent fast performance, high reliability and ease of use. It's used in more than 10 million installations ranging from large corporations to specialized embedded applications on every continent in the world.

MySQL is extremely popular as a back-end to many web applications. This means that the database is used as a way to store and quickly retrieve data used by the website. For example, if a site has a forum that uses MySQL as a back-end, then all of the user accounts, posts, forum settings, etc. are stored in tables in the MySQL database(s) that the forum uses. A programming language such as PHP is then used to access and manipulate the data via the user's browser.
