All script apps like forums or virtual stores store their info within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the website information like items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
