All script applications such as forums or virtual stores save their data within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, 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 well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it works on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with massive databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
