All script apps including forums or web shops keep their info within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it works on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with large databases. Lots of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
