The Structured Query Language is used in manipulating data stored in Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS). SQL provides commands through which data can be extracted, sorted, updated, deleted and inserted. SQL has the full support of ANSI (American National Standards Institute), which has laid down certain rules for the language.
SQL can be used with any RDBMS such
as MySQL, mSQL, PostgresSQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Access, Sybase, Ingres etc. All the important and common SQL statements are supported by these RDBMS, however, each has its own set of proprietary statements and extensions.
MySQL is a database. A database is a data storage feature. It can be used to store, sort, arrange, and display information. MySQL is a functional feature on it's own. For our tutorials, we will be using PHP commands to use the functions of a MySQL database.
Admin is a graphical interface program that allows you to use the functions of a MySQL database. Some hosts may have this program available.
MySQL is a data storage area. In this storage area, there are small sections called TABLES. Very similar to a normal HTML table, the MySQL tables consist of rows, columns, and cells.

- Mysql++A C++ API for Mysql
MySQL++ is a C++ wrapper for MySQL's C API. It is built around STL principles, to make dealing with the database as easy as dealing with an STL container. MySQL++ relieves the programmer of dealing with cumbersome C data structures, generation of repetitive SQL statements, and manual creation of C++ data structures to mirror the database schema.If you have any questions about this project, do not email me about it. Search for solutions on the MySQL++ mailing list first, and post to that list if you can't find the answer you need. I monitor that mailing list. By posting to the mailing list, your question and any answers are archived for future developers to find, and you may get better answers than if you just ask me.

- Setting Up a MySQL Based Website-Part I
In this age of the full-service internet, the demand for bigger and badder websites will only increase. To meet the demands of these full-service websites, the SQL database servers come into play. One of the more popular SQL servers available for download on the internet is MySQL. MySQL is not released under a full GPL free license, but for some applications, like intranets, it is free to use. For most users, a $200 license will have to be purchased. However, this price compares very favourably with other companies producing database backends for the commercial market, like IBM, Oracle and Sybase.
- MySQL on Mac OS X
MySQL has become one of the most popular databases for Web applications. The database is well suited for common Web-related tasks like content management, and for implementing Web features like discussion boards and guestbooks. For a time, some developers avoided MySQL for commercial applications because it did not implement certain features, such as transactions. But this is no longer the case, and MySQL is a great choice for just about any Web-based application.In this article I?ll give you an overview of MySQL?s features and drawbacks, show you how to install MySQL on Mac OS X, and introduce you to some of MySQL?s notable technical aspects.
