All script apps including forums or e-stores keep their information in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site data like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with massive databases. Numerous popular platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.
