All script apps such as forums or web shops store their data in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the website info including items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The mid-level software which 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 widely used as it can run on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with huge databases. Numerous popular platforms such as WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to keep their content.
