All script applications such as forums or virtual shops keep their info in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the website information like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it can run on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing performance even with huge databases. Numerous widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
