Frequently asked questions
MySQL is an open-source relational database management system that is extremely popular for use with many types of applications. A single MySQL database can contain multiple tables with rows of records in them. A MySQL database is relational because the records in one table can relate to records in other tables. For example, a record in a customer's table can relate to multiple records in both an addresses table and an orders table. This data can be accessed, created, and modified using SQL queries. MySQL uses a version of the SQL language. It is similar to a programming language, but it is only used for accessing data. Software applications can then use MySQL code libraries to generate SQL queries to store and access the data they need to operate in MySQL.
