What Is MySQL?

MySQL is a free, open-source relational database management system that uses Structured Query Language (SQL), the most popular language for adding, accessing, and processing data in a database. MySQL is noted for its speed, reliability, and flexibility, and has been widely used for website applications since the mid-1990s.

MySQL is often used in conjunction with PHP, a widely-used open source general-purpose scripting language.
