All script apps such as forums or online shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The mid-level software which 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 commonly used as it works on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with big databases. A lot of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
