If you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any info that both you and the site users produce shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, that's structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is done by using special software called database management system and one of the most famous ones worldwide is MySQL. A lot of script apps are built to work with MySQL as it's convenient to use, it works very well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can function with common web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on various hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are hundreds of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
