MySQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL), the most popular language for adding, accessing, and processing data in a database. MySQL 4.1+ offers native UTF-8 support.
requires MySQL 3.23
or later to run (see the minimal system requirements
). Earlier MySQL versions are not supported. The installer
automatically checks if MySQL 3.23+ is available on the server, if the target database exists and if the specified users can access it.
