All script apps like forums or web shops store their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with big databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
