If you use a script-driven application for your website, any information that both you and the site users generate shall be stored in a database - a collection of info, that's structured in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is carried out through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most popular ones worldwide is MySQL. A large amount of script apps are built to work with MySQL since it’s convenient to use, it performs very well on a hosting server and it's universal as it can work with common web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on various server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones for example WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
