All script apps like forums or e-shops save their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the site information such as items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it operates on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
