A large amount of script apps are created to work with MySQL since it is easy to use, it works very well on a web server and it's also universal as it can function with widely used web programming languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java) and on various hosting server OS (Windows, UNIX, Linux). There are thousands of scripts which use MySQL, including quite popular ones for instance WordPress, Joomla and Moodle.
