When you use a script-driven application for your website, any information that both you and the site users produce will be stored inside a database - a collection of info, that is structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software called database management system and one of the most well-known ones globally is MySQL. A lot of script applications are built to work with MySQL because it is easy to use, it functions very well on a web server and it's universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on various server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
