All script applications such as forums or e-stores keep their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the site data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it operates on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
