All script applications like forums or online stores save their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the site data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it runs on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. Numerous widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
