What is MySQL?

Above all, we need to know what does database mean. Essentially, a database is just a collection of data. Some specialized database software like MySQL, are programs that let you store and retrieve data as efficiently as possible.

Many computer programs, including web-based blogs, content management systems, etc require data restoration sometimes. For example, blog software need to store the posts you write and retrieve them when a visitor goes to your site. Instead of reinventing the wheel and implementing their own system of storing and retrieving data, these software simply use the specialized database programs.

In order to make it easy for other programs to access data through them, many database software support a computer language called SQL. Programs which want the database software to handle the low-level work of managing data use this language to send instructions. So MySQL is just a brand of database software.
