About MySQL

The most reliable open-source relational database management system

What is MySQL?

MySQL is an open-source relational database management system (RDBMS) based on the client-server model. It was originally developed in 1994 by Michael Widenius, co-founder of the Swedish company MySQL AB; however, in 2008, it was acquired by Sun Microsystems, which Oracle acquired in 2010. Under the Oracle umbrella, MySQL has become one of the most reliable RDBMS globally, to the point of rivaling the Oracle Database itself in some cases.

MySQL Versions

Over the years, PHP has evolved to meet the demands of modern websites. As a result, today, you can find 3 major versions of PHP used on websites worldwide. 

  • MySQL 5.6. Launched in 2013, this was the second release (after MySQL 5.5) made since Oracle acquired the rights to MySQL. It incorporated new features and performance improvements. This version is no longer supported as of February 2021 and is not recommended for production use.
  • MySQL 5.7. Released in October 2015, one of the most relevant features of this version is incorporating native support for JSON data. To date, the latest version (5.7.33) is one of the most used by developers around the world. This version will be officially supported until October 2023. 
  • MySQL 8.0. Released in April 2018, this is the latest version of MySQL. It includes multiple enhancements, including NoSQL Document Store, JSON Extended syntax, new JSON functions, and many performance improvements. This is one of the most popular versions among developers who want to push MySQL to the limit in MySQL 8-compatible applications. This version will be supported until April 2026.

Why Use MySQL?

There are many database options available today. However, MySQL is still the leading open-source DBMS, beating its closest competitor, PostgreSQL, by more than twice the ranking score

However, its performance is just one of the many reasons why you should consider MySQL in your project.

  • MySQL is famous for being one of the most secure relational databases in the world.
  • MySQL is the de facto choice in developing web applications such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and more.
  • MySQL offers incredible scalability, which is a huge advantage for eCommerce applications.
  • Unmatched transactional support
  • Part of one of the most popular development stacks (LAMP)
