When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any info which both you and the site users create will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of info, that's arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones worldwide is MySQL. A lot of script apps are created to work with MySQL as it's simple to use, it performs really well on a web server and it is universal as it can function with well-known web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a number of web server OS (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are loads of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
