All script apps including forums or web stores store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the site information like items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it operates on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with huge databases. Lots of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
