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. The MySQL development project has made its source code available under the terms of the GNU General Public License, as well as under a variety of proprietary agreements. It was owned and sponsored by a single for-profit firm, the Swedish company MySQL AB, now owned by Oracle Corporation. For exclusive use, several paid editions are available and offer additional functionality.
It is a central component of the LAMP open-source web application software stack. Meanwhile, the LAMP is an acronym for “Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python”. It also used in many high-profile, large-scale websites, including Google. This offered under two different editions: its open source Community Server and the proprietary Enterprise Server. Its Enterprise Server differentiated by a series of proprietary extensions which install as server plugins. Otherwise, it shares the version numbering system and built from the same code base.
