All script apps including forums or online stores keep their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with big databases. Lots of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
