What Is MySQL?
MySQL is the world s most used Open Source database. MySQL is known for its exceptionally fast speeds, straightforward customization, flexibility and reliability. Many of MySQL s advantages stem from its minimalist approach and code reuse. MySQL utilizes Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL is a computer language designed to add, retrieve and manage data within a database management system that uses a logical, easy-to-use syntax.
MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS). An RDBMS stores data in table format, with the relationship within the data also being stored in tables.

- Remote MySQL – Allows external servers to access your MySQL databases by adding the domain name to the list of hosts that are able to access databases on your web site.
- MySQL Database Wizard Will walk you through creating a database s name, username, password and privileges.
Hosting With MySQL and PHP
PHP is used to place instructions into the pages of a website. When a visitor accesses your website, PHP-enabled web server software (like Apache in a LAMP stack) executes these instructions behind the scenes to retrieve information from a database to be displayed on the page. In this example, MySQL is the database that stores and organizes this large amount of information to be accessed by PHP s instructions.
Example. Let s say you would like to create a poetry website. Hosting with MySQL and PHP will save you time because you would only need to add all your poems to your MySQL database once and write one PHP file that could be used to locate any poem in your database and display it on your site. This is opposed to writing an HTML file for EVERY poem you want displayed on your site. This example is extremely simplified, but illustrates how MySQL s and PHP s relationship can create powerful dynamic websites.
