If you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any data which both you and the website users produce will 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 carried out through special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A lot of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it is easy to work with, it performs really well on a web server and it's also universal as it can work with widely used web programming languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python) and on a number of hosting server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
