The latter is commonly used as it operates on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with massive databases. Many well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
