All script apps such as forums or online stores save their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with massive databases. Lots of widely used platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
