What Is MySQL?

As explained in Chapter 26, “Introduction to Dynamic Dreamweaver,” MySQL is a free, easily available database management system (DBMS) available for Windows and various flavors of UNIX (including Mac OS X). It’s a great development tool, and is used for online database systems all over the world. In addition to its cost benefits, it’s fast, stable, and can handle huge amounts of data and heavy traffic (lots of people accessing it at once).

Note

MySQL might be free for most uses, but it is not an open-source product.
