All script apps such as forums or e-stores save their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the site information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great efficiency even with huge databases. Lots of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
