This is the world’s most popular relational database management system (RDBMS). You can download, install and use it for free on any Windows machine (from XP to 10, both 32- and 64-bit versions), also on Linux and other . MySQL also works as a database server and is able to handle massive amounts of data quickly and securely. If you’re into website administration, this is the solution for you.
This RDBMS allows multi-user access and can create and maintain very large, complex types of databases. In fact, this solution is used on a corporate level by many enterprises around the world. Other notable pros are the high level of security and the multitude of connectivity options and settings. Your database server can be as secure as you want it to be.
Installing MySQL does require at least some database and server experience. You can choose between a standard installation (pretty basic and with few customization options) and a detailed installation (and advanced deployment where you are in control of almost everything).
There is no graphical user interface, so you need to perform all operations from a command line tool. However, one may choose to install a third-party frontend (such as MySQL Workbench, HeidiSQL or Vfront).
MySQL is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in databases category and is available to all software users as a free download.
