All script applications such as forums or virtual stores keep their info in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the website information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified 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 famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it works on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with large databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
