All script apps like forums or online stores keep their info in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it runs on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms like Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
