When do you use which in general? Examples are highly encouraged!

I am referring so MySql, but can't imagine the concept being different on another DBMS

GROUP BY clause is used to aggregate records by the specified columns which allows you to perform aggregation functions on non-grouped columns 

(such as COUNT, AVG, SUM, etc). Whereas, ORDER BY clause is used to alter the order in which items are returned.

Try this:

TABLE:

ID NAME

1  Peter

2  John

3  Greg

4  Peter

SELECT *

FROM TABLE

ORDER BY NAME

3 Greg

2 John

1 Peter

4 Peter

SELECT Count(ID), NAME

FROM TABLE

GROUP BY NAME

1 Greg

1 John 

2 Peter

SELECT NAME

FROM TABLE

GROUP BY NAME

HAVING Count(ID) > 1

=

Peter
