All script apps such as forums or virtual shops keep their data within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great efficiency even with massive databases. Lots of well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
