David I got a new computer and I have that MYSQL running by the clock. Dell didn't know how to shut it off. What is it and can I use it too for the form I am creating to gather info on people?

if dell has installed MYSQL on your machine then thats very nice of them

i have never heard of that before

MYSQL is an open source database which works hand in hand with PHP and other scripting languages. The Database is command line driven but there are third party consoles available for free and to buy if you like your applications command line free (API)

you need to get to grips with SQL in order to control and use this database but its not that difficult
and can I use it too for the form I am creating to gather info on people?
thats what it does best
