If you use a script-driven app for your website, any data which both you and the site users produce shall be stored inside a database - a collection of data, that is organized in cells and tables for simplier and easier reading and writing. The latter is accomplished through special software referred to as database management system and one of the most widely used ones around the globe is MySQL. A lot of script applications are designed to work with MySQL as it's easy to use, it functions really well on a web hosting server and it's also universal as it can work with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on a number of hosting server Operating Systems (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are hundreds of scripts that use MySQL, including quite popular ones such as WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
