All script applications such as forums or web stores save their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the website data like items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it operates on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms such as WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
