When you use a script-driven application for your Internet site, any information that both you and the website users generate shall be stored in a database - a collection of data, that is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by using special software called database management system and one of the most famous ones world-wide is MySQL. A wide range of script apps are designed to work with MySQL because it’s simple to use, it performs very well on a server and it's also universal as it can work with well-known web programming languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP) and on several hosting server Operating Systems (UNIX, Linux, Windows). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones such as WordPress, Moodle and Joomla.
