All script applications like forums or virtual shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with large databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
