All script apps like forums or e-stores keep their data within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it functions on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms like Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
