All script apps like forums or e-stores store their data in a database - a group of cells and tables containing the website data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it works on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with huge databases. Numerous famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
