    Sorry Its different thing....microsoft's version of SQL is called MsSql but you are right in some part that Mysql is based on SQL, mysql is a different product and we use Mysql with PHP. Below i am providing the difference between MsSql and MySql If I made any mistake you plz correct it.

    SQL (standard query language) is the basic language to extract data from databases. All major databases (and most small ones) utilize some form of SQL.

    The differences between MSSQL and MySQL are more than I will number here, but here are the major points. MSSQL is a Microsoft software option for databases. There is a free version, but generally speaking if you want to own a full version of MSSQL it will cost a pretty penny. MySQL used to be free, but there are some versions (like the enterprise edition) that now cost some money. There are some syntax differences. There are certain functions that are either unique to one or the other (for example MSSQL has a superset of SQL called Transact-SQL) or that operate slightly differently.

    You can use either database with both PHP and ASP.Net. Generally you will see MySQL with PHP because both products can be had for free. You generally see MSSQL with ASP.Net because both products are Microsoft. However, they both work well with both products.

    Thanks.

    MySQL is an open source RDBMS that relies on SQL for processing the data in the database. MySQL provides APIs for the languages C, C++, Eiffel, Java, Perl, PHP and Python. In addition, OLE DB and ODBC providers exist for MySQL data connection in the Microsoft environment. A MySQL .NET Native Provider is also available, which allows native MySQL to .NET access without the need for OLE DB.

    MySQL is not from microsoft, from microsoft one is microsoft SQL server, MySAL is an open source database used widely in linux and php scripting. If you don't know anything about MySQL please at least read debasis previous post, he has make a very good explanation about that. Please don't simply post here to confuse others.
