All script applications such as forums or virtual stores keep their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the site information such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it can run on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent performance even with huge databases. Numerous widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
