A lot of script applications are created to work with MySQL since it is convenient to use, it works perfectly on a hosting server and it's also universal as it can perform with common web programming languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java) and on various web server Operating Systems (Windows, Linux, UNIX). There are thousands of scripts that use MySQL, including really popular ones for example WordPress, Moodle and Joomla™.
