All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their info within a database - a set of cells and tables containing the website information including items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with massive databases. Numerous widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
