All script applications such as forums or e-stores store their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it works on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with huge databases. Numerous popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
