MySQL Introduction >> Planning
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.

phpMyAdmin 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.
