All script applications like forums or virtual shops keep their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the site data like items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it operates on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with huge databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
