All script apps such as forums or web stores keep their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the website info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it operates on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with huge databases. Numerous widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
