All script applications such as forums or e-shops store their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the website information such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with massive databases. A lot of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
