When you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any information that both you and the website users produce shall be stored within a database - an accumulation of info, which is arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out by using special software known as database management system and one of the most well-known ones world-wide is MySQL. A number of script applications are built to work with MySQL since it is easy to use, it functions really well on a server and it is universal as it can perform with popular web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on various hosting server OS (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are huge amounts of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones like WordPress, Moodle and Joomla™.
