When you use a script-driven application for your site, any info which both you and the website users create will be stored in a database - a collection of data, which is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is done through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script applications are created to work with MySQL since it’s easy to use, it performs very well on a web hosting server and it is universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on a number of hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are huge amounts of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones like WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
