All script applications like forums or e-stores save their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with big databases. A lot of well-known platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
