When you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any data that both you and the site users create will be stored inside a database - an accumulation of information, which is organized in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones worldwide is MySQL. A lot of script apps are built to work with MySQL since it’s user-friendly, it performs very well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on a variety of web server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
