All script applications such as forums or web shops store their information within a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site information like items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, 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 famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it functions on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great functionality even with massive databases. Lots of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to save their content.
