A wide range of script apps are created to work with MySQL because it’s easy to use, it functions exceptionally well on a website hosting server and it's universal as it can perform with widely used web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on a variety of server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including very popular ones such as WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
