All script apps such as forums or e-stores save their info in a database - a set of cells and tables containing the website info like items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The intermediary software which 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 widely used simply because it works on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing performance even with massive databases. Numerous famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
