The difference between MySQL and SQL

Recommended Posts

Hello w3schools community !

I would like to know ..

- What is exactly the difference between SQL ( Structured query language ) and MySQL ?, ( with examples if possible )

- Does learning SQL suffice ? Or should I use a RDBMS such as MySQL, Oracle .. etc ?

Thank you .

SQL stands for Structured Query Language, that is used for accessing database to manipulate data stored in those databases.

MYSQL is a open source database management system, mostly used in a Linux server environment that uses SQL.

MSSQL (MicroSoft - SQL) is a NON open source database management system, by Microsoft (and therefore expensive) and mostly used in Microsoft server environment that uses SQL.
