Sorry for newbie question but it puzzles me to see mySQL and PHP separated in forum. Why is that?
I always thought PHP is related to mySQL but you need mySQL for PHP to work with? Or am i wrong??!! :confused:

PHP can work with many different database systems. MySQL can work with many different languages like ASP, JSP and Perl as well as PHP. Most people use PHP and MySQL together as they both are free and usually come standard on most webhosts.

PHP & MySQL are "integrated."
PHP can be used without MySQL and MySQL can be used without PHP.
PHP incorporates MySQL so it makes it a little easier to use.
P.S. This is my opinion
