If you use a script-driven app for your website, any info which both you and the site users produce will be stored in a database - a collection of data, which is arranged in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software called database management system and one of the most well-known ones world-wide is MySQL. A number of script applications are created to work with MySQL because it is easy to use, it functions perfectly on a hosting server and it is universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on several web server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are loads of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for example Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
