All script apps including forums or e-shops store their data within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it runs on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with large databases. Lots of famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.
