All script applications including forums or web shops store their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it functions on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great efficiency even with big databases. A lot of famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
