What is a MySQL Database? What is it used for?

According to Wikipedia, “MySQL is an open-source relational database management system. Its name is a combination of “My”, the name of co-founder Michael Widenius’s daughter, and “SQL”, the abbreviation for Structured Query Language.” To put that in laymen’s terms, that means it is a system to store information so that you can grab and display it on your website.
