All script apps including forums or online shops store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. Lots of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to save their content.
