All script apps such as forums or e-shops store their information within a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it functions on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great efficiency even with large databases. Many widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
