All script apps like forums or virtual stores store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site information like items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. A lot of famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
