All script applications including forums or virtual shops save their information in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it functions on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with massive databases. Numerous popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
