Why use MySQL?
« on: September 11, 2017, 10:08:13 am »
MySQL does have a few advantages for web developers compared to some other systems:

It's open source, which means it's free for anyone to use and modify.
It's widely available. MySQL can be installed on many different platforms, and it usually comes standard with most web hosting setups.
It's easy to use. Setting up and working with MySQL databases is relatively straightforward.
It works well with PHP. As of version 5.3, PHP has a native MySQL driver that is tightly coupled with the PHP engine, making it a good choice for PHP coders.
