MySQL is an open source database management system based on a computing language called SQL. SQL is used for communicating with the associated database.

A website that uses MySQL will generally include pages which access information from a database. Usually referred to as dynamic pages, the content of each of the website’s pages is generated from a database and is loaded at the same time as the page.

Database-driven websites which use MySQL also employ PHP to access information from the database. Because MySQL and PHP are open source, the coupling of PHP and MySQL has become a common and natural choice for websites which are database-driven.
