Web Developer Resource Index: MySQL

MySQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS). It is designed for simplicity and speed, with many features of the big commercial database systems as well. It is very popular with Web developers for delivering dynamic content.

MySQL forms the ‘M’ in the acronym AMP. And while most commonly used with the PHP programming language, there are also interface libraries available for Perl, Python and vast assortment of others including C and C++, Lisp, Eiffel, Smalltalk, Java, Ruby and Tcl.

MySQL is portable. It is designed for use on a wide variety of platforms and operating systems including the open source Unix-like Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and many others including NetBSD, OpenBSD, Windows, OS/2, AIX, HP-UX, and SunOS/Solaris.
