All script apps such as forums or virtual stores store their info within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the site information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it can run on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with large databases. A lot of famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
