All script applications like forums or online shops keep their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing the website data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it functions on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to store their content.
