All script apps such as forums or e-stores keep their info within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the website information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with huge databases. Many popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
