All script applications such as forums or virtual shops keep their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the site data including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it operates on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with large databases. Lots of popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
