All script apps like forums or e-stores store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with massive databases. Lots of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
