All script applications such as forums or web stores store their information within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it can run on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing performance even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
