If you use a script-driven app for your Internet site, any data which both you and the site users produce shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of data, that's arranged in cells and tables for easier reading and writing.

A number of script apps are designed to work with MySQL because it is user-friendly, it functions perfectly on a web hosting server and it's universal as it can work with common web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on several web server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are loads of scripts that use MySQL, including extremely popular ones for instance Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
