Don't confuse MySQL with SQL. MySQL is a database server that is used by most ISPs and is the foundation of most internet portals (I am not sure whether Proz.com uses MySQL).
SQL is the so called structured query language. This is the "programming" language used to query a database, such as MySQL. However, it is not limited to MySQL. AFAIK, every database application, including Oracle and MS Access, uses SQL, even if each has a different "dialect".

Why is it important? Because this language is used to obtain the necessary information from a database.

HTH.

Open Source along with Linux & PHP Jan 31, 2004

Open Source technologies tend to be better products, no licenses are required and they grow fast since they are "open" [and all developers contribute to fix problems and enhance the programs].
