All script applications including forums or online stores store their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it can run on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with large databases. A lot of widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
