MySQL is one of the most widespread database control systems out there. A database is a collection of cells with data that are organized in tables and the management system is the software that links the info to a script application. As an example, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars and so on in a database and every single time a website visitor opens a given thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content which should be displayed on a certain page. MySQL is quite popular due to its great performance, convenience and the fact that it can operate with numerous popular scripting languages including PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera. All dynamic websites which are developed with a script-driven application need some type of database and a lot of the most popular ones such as Joomla, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress work with MySQL.

You shall be able to change the password, erase a database or permit remote access to it just as easily. For the latter option you'll be able to choose the IP addresses which will be able to connect to the database remotely to make sure that unauthorized people will not be able to access your info.
