All script applications such as forums or web stores store their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all of the website data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays 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 widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it works on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with huge databases. Lots of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
