All script apps like forums or virtual shops store their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, etc. When 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 referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. Numerous popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
