All script apps including forums or online shops keep their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the website data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
