When you use a script-driven application for your site, any information which both you and the site users generate will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of data, that's structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is done through special software known as database management system and one of the most famous ones worldwide is MySQL. A number of script apps are created to work with MySQL because it’s convenient to use, it performs very well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can work with common web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on several hosting server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are huge amounts of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla™ and Moodle.
