When you use a script-driven application for your site, any data which both you and the website users generate will be stored in a database - an accumulation of information, which is organized in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A number of script apps are designed to work with MySQL because it is easy to work with, it functions very well on a website hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with well-known web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on various hosting server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including popular ones like WordPress, Joomla™ and Moodle.
