All script applications such as forums or web stores store their information within a database - a group of cells and tables containing the website information such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, 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 widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with large databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
