All script apps including forums or online shops save their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it can run on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing performance even with large databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
