When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any data that both you and the site users produce shall be stored in a database - an accumulation of info, that's arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software known as database management system and one of the most famous ones globally is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL because it’s convenient to use, it works very well on a hosting server and it's universal as it can function with common web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a number of server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla™ and WordPress.
