All script applications like forums or e-shops store their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it can run on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent performance even with large databases. A lot of widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
