All script applications like forums or web stores keep their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it can run on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with huge databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla™ or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
