All script applications including forums or online stores keep their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it operates on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with huge databases. Many popular platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
