MySQL 5 Databases
Learn what relational databases are and if using MySQL databases can be beneficial for your sites and apps.
All script applications including forums or web shops save their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the website information including items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it works on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great efficiency even with massive databases. Numerous well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to save their content.
