All script applications like forums or e-shops keep their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it can run on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with huge databases. A lot of famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
