All script apps like forums or virtual stores keep their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the site data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it runs on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with large databases. Lots of famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
