Blog posts, images, comments visitors leave, and so on. Basically any action through the platform that requires data storage directly relates to MySQL because that is where it is stored.

Structured Query Language(SQL), or “sequel” as it’s pronounced, is a computer programming language used by database software.

In SQL, data is usually organized in various tables. For example, a sports team database might have the tables teams, players, and games. A wedding database might have tables guests, vendors, and music_playlist.
Imagine we have a table that stores family members with each member's name, species, gender, and number of books read.
Let's start by grabbing all of the data in one table. We have a table called family_members that is shown below. In order to grab all of that data, please run the following command:
SELECT * FROM family_members;

The * above means that all of the columns will be returned, which in this case are id, name, gender, species, and num_books_read.
