MySQL 5 Databases
Find out what relational databases are and if using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your websites and applications.
All script applications like forums or virtual stores save their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it can run on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great functionality even with huge databases. Numerous popular platforms such as WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
