MySQL is a database management system.
A database is a structured collection of data. It may be anything from a simple
shopping list to a picture gallery or the vast amounts of information in a corporate
network. To add, access and process data stored in a computer database, you need
a database management system such as MySQL. Since computers are very good at handling
large amounts of data, database management plays a central role in computing,
as stand-alone utilities or as parts of other applications.
MySQL is a relational
database management system. A relational database storesp data in separate tables
rather than putting all the data in one big storeroom. This adds speed and flexibility.
The tables are linked by defined relations making it possible to combine data
from several tables on request. The SQL part of MySQL stands for "Structured Query
Language" - the most common standardized language used to access databases.
MySQL is Open Source Software Open source means that it´s possible to use and
modify for anyone. Anybody can download MySQL from the Internet and use it without
paying anything. Anybody so inclined can study the source code and change it to
fit their needs
