All script applications such as forums or virtual shops save their info within a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the website information like items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it can run on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
