All script apps like forums or online stores keep their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great performance even with large databases. Lots of well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
