All script apps such as forums or e-stores store their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a particular 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 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 a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with large databases. A lot of widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
