If you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any information which both you and the site users create will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, that is structured in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software called database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are created to work with MySQL as it's easy to use, it performs very well on a web hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java) and on a number of server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
