When you use a script-driven app for your website, any data which both you and the site users create shall be stored inside a database - an accumulation of info, that's structured in cells and tables for simpler reading and writing. The latter is accomplished by employing special software known as database management system and one of the most widely used ones globally is MySQL. A lot of script apps are designed to work with MySQL as it's convenient to use, it performs really well on a web server and it is universal as it can work with popular web programming languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python) and on various web server Operating Systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows). There are literally thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including very popular ones like Moodle, Joomla and WordPress.
