All script applications such as forums or online stores store their information within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the website info including items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most widely used 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, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. Numerous well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
