MySQL is a database system supplied by Oracle Corporation. Its code is open-source. I think it can work on pretty well any server. I have no personal experience with it, but I do not think its use is markedly different from those of other relational databases, such as Oracle and IBM's DB2.

MySQL is a freely available open source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL).

SQL is the most popular language for adding, accessing and managing content in a database. It is most noted for its quick processing, proven reliability, ease and flexibility of use. MySQL is an essential part of almost every open source PHP application. Good examples for PHP/MySQL-based scripts are phpBB, osCommerce and Joomla.

MySQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS) based on Structured Query Language (SQL).

MySQL runs on virtually all platforms, including Linux, UNIX, and Windows. Although it can be used in a wide range of applications, MySQL is most often associated with web-based applications and online publishing and is an important component of an open source enterprise stack called LAMP. LAMP is a Web development platform that uses Linux as the operating system, Apache as the Web server, MySQL as the relational database management system and PHP as the object-oriented scripting language. (Sometimes Perl or Python is used instead of PHP.)

MySQL database

Before I can answer your question, let me explain what a "database" is. A database is a type of computer software that is designed to handle lots of data, but to store it in such a way that finding and retrieving data is done in a quick and efficient way.

Programs that want the database software to handle the low-level work of managing data simply use SQL to send instructions to the database to retrieve the needed information.

There are many databases that support the use of SQL to access their data, among them MySQL which is an open source database management system.

There are some ways to improve the performance of SQL queries at scale and to generate custom real-time reports and dashboards by replicating MySQL to a data warehouse with data integration products like Alooma.

MY SQL is a open source relational database management system which is used to store and manipulate the data . The data can be manipulated using the special language called structured query language (SQL).

Majority PHP related web applications and content management system's back end is in MY SQL. There is a package called WAMP Server (Windows,Apache,MYSQL and PHP) can be installed where in you can develop web applications using PHP and My SQL.
