When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information that both you and the site users produce shall be stored within a database - an accumulation of data, which is 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 famous ones world-wide is MySQL. A lot of script applications are created to work with MySQL as it is convenient to use, it functions very well on a web hosting server and it is universal as it can function with famous web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on several server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including really popular ones for instance WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
