All script apps such as forums or e-stores keep their data within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it works on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with big databases. Many famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
