All script applications including forums or virtual shops store their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the Internet site data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it functions on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. A lot of famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
