All script applications such as forums or web stores store their info within a database - a group of cells and tables containing all the Internet site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it can run on a number of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with massive databases. Lots of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
