MySQL is the world's most popular Open Source database solution. MySQL simplifies the organization, storage and retrieval of information from a database. The better part of the most widely used open source solutions like WordPress, Drupal and Joomla each require a MySQL backend. Why? They each use MySQL to store all of your websites' blog posts, articles, pages, visitor comments etc. It also ensures that requests for the stored information can be made in a timely manner.
