All script apps such as forums or online stores store their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing all the site data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it can run on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with big databases. Numerous widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
