All script apps like forums or virtual stores store their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website information like items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. Lots of famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
