All script applications including forums or e-shops keep their info in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the site data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software that 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 widely used as it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with massive databases. Numerous widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
