When you use a script-driven application for your website, any data that both you and the site users produce will be stored within a database - an accumulation of information, that is structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL because it’s easy to work with, it functions really well on a server and it is universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on numerous web server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
