All script apps like forums or virtual stores save their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the website data like items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
