All script applications such as forums or e-shops store their data in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it operates on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with big databases. Numerous famous platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
