I have been a web programmer/developer for many years. I am proficient in using MySQL to populate and manipulate websites. Below is some more information on MySQL. You can also use the reference link at the bottom of this article to find out more information on MySQL.
MySQL (/maɪ ˌɛskjuːˈɛl/ “My S-Q-L”, officially, but also called /maɪ ˈsiːkwəl/ “My Sequel”) is (as of July 2013) the world’s second most[nb 1] widely used open-source relational database management system (RDBMS). It is named after co-founder Michael Widenius‘s daughter, My. The SQL phrase stands for Structured Query Language.
The MySQL development project has made its source code available under the terms of the GNU General Public License, as well as under a variety of proprietary agreements. MySQL was owned and sponsored by a single for-profit firm, the Swedish company MySQL AB, now owned by Oracle Corporation.
MySQL is a popular choice of database for use in web applications, and is a central component of the widely used LAMP open source web application software stack (and other ‘AMP’ stacks). LAMP is an acronym for “Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python.” Free-software-open source projects that require a full-featured database management system often use MySQL.
