When you use a script-driven application for your website, any info which both you and the website users produce will be stored inside a database - a collection of info, which is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A number of script applications are designed to work with MySQL since it’s easy to work with, it functions perfectly on a server and it's universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on a variety of server OS (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
