All script apps including forums or online stores keep their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the website data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, 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 widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it operates on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great functionality even with huge databases. Many famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to store their content.
