When you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any info which both you and the site users produce will be stored in a database - a collection of info, that's arranged in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script applications are designed to work with MySQL since it’s easy to use, it works really well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on a variety of hosting server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones for example Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
