I've read brief descriptions and I thought that it was some type of server in which a variety of program's can use it to access the Internet or connect multiple computers together using the net, such as instant messaging clients, is this correct?

|MySQL uses php to work.|
PHP is nothing to do with MySQL, it is simply one of many languages that has features to connect to MySQL (and many other database servers).
I already answered his question so there is no need to pile on to my answer with incorrect information. Not trying to be a dick but it is information like that which had the guy confused about what MySQL was in the first place.

Yes, Ozzy answered the question over a month ago... why keep piling on?
|And I don't it needs php. Rather it is used by programs written in php.|
No! It uses programs written in a various languages.
For everyone else who cannot seem to grasp the concept;
Database servers (MySQWL, MSSQL, etc...) are stand alone applications.
Programing languages (VB, C++, PHP, Perl, ColdFustion, etc...) are used to make server side scripts, stand alone applications, etc...
Database servers sit online waiting to be accessed by applications, server side scripts or users through a console.
Yes MySQL & PHP are one of the most common mixes, but are in no way tied to or require each other.
If you want to access MySQL through another language (or directly through a console) you can.
If you want to use PHP to access another database server (e.g. MSSQL) you can.
