All script apps such as forums or e-shops save their data within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all of the site data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
