All script applications such as forums or virtual stores keep their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it runs on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
