All script applications like forums or online stores save their data within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it functions on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with large databases. Many well-known platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
