All script apps including forums or e-shops keep their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the site information including items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. Numerous widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
